WEE (Waste electrical and electronic equipment)

On 13th August 2005, the new European Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) came into force. The Directive’s aim is to regulate the disposal of electronic waste by separating its treatment from that of household waste. Selective collection systems are being put in place to recover all WEEE with the view to recycling.

This Directive requires Air conditioning appliance manufacturers and distributors to:
– Mark certain models marketed after 13th August 2005.
– Meet financial obligations associated with end-of-life appliance recycling.

As users of our products, and on those products covered by the Directive, you will observe a pictogram (see illustration below) on the Maker’s plate representing a «crossed-out refuse bin». This pictogram is intended to inform the user that the appliance in question must be disposed of separately from household waste. As part of its sustainable development policy, along with the entire profession, Electra is committed to abiding by this new European initiative. Our environment is precious, let’s preserve it.
