What is WEEE?

WEEE refers to waste electrical and electronic equipment. The discarded electrical and electronic equipment is WEEE. The electrical and electronic equipment cover all appliances that require an electric current, battery, or solar energy in order to operate. In addition, all lamps, excluding incandescent and halogen lamps, are regarded as electrical and electronic equipment.

The most common domestic electrical and electronic equipment include, among others, household appliances, clocks, computers, printers, mobile phones, televisions,  consumer electronics, cameras, lamps, lights, and power tools. Electric sauna ovens, hot water heaters and other electrical equipment for building systems are also EEE devices.

Discarded electrical and electronic equipment is accepted free of charge in more than 400 regional WEEE collection points. Their addresses can be found at www.kierratys.info.

Several stores also accept waste electrical and electronic equipment. Small WEEE, data WEEE, and lamp WEEE are collected into separate collection containers in stores. For further information, click the name of the WEEE type on the left.

NOTE! The collection points receive only complete equipment.
