WEEEFORUM

What happens to electrical and electronic equipment that was put on the market many years ago and whose manufacturer possibly no longer exists?

Consumers are entitled to return them free of charge. In most organisations that are member of the WEEE Forum, WEEE management costs are shared among producers who are active on the market today, for example in proportion to their current market share and irrespective of their share of the market at the time when the product was first sold.
