Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Finland

Under the Finnish Waste Act which implements regulations for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) which came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that you buy from TE after August 13th 2005, TE is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the waste electrical and electronic equipment (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 Waste Act, TE is also required to provide arrangements for 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 covers the following costs for WEEE compliance management in Finland:

  • The costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by Finland WEEE Regulations
  • The costs of transportation of your WEEE to TE 's appointed recycler in Finland.

TE has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover the costs of transportation as well as any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN recycling facility in Finland.

To arrange collection of your WEEE please contact the EARN partner in Finland directly:
