Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Belgium

Regulations concerning the management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Belgium are implemented by the following regulations in each Administrative Region:

  • In the Flanders (Flemish) Region, by amendments to the Waste Prevention and Management Ordinance (VLAREA) which came into force on December 1st 2004
  • In the Wallonia Region, by an amendment to the existing Producer Responsibility Decree which came into force on June 3rd 2005
  • In the Brussels Capital Region, by an amendment to the existing Producer Responsibility Decree which came into force on June 3rd 2005

Under the WEEE Regulations for each Administrative Region of Belgium, for equipment that you buy from TE after August 13th 2005, TE is required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of WEEE that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. The old equipment that your new purchase from TE replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the Regulations in each Administrative Region, TE is also required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from TE after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

TE has joined compliance scheme Recupel to manage all aspects of WEEE collection and recycling in Belgium. Please contact Recupel below to arrange collection of the WEEE.
