Collection and Recycling Arrangements

Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Portugal

Under Decree 230/2004 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 Decree, 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 has joined compliance scheme AMB3E to manage all aspects of WEEE collection and recycling in Portugal. Please contact AMB3E below to arrange collection of the WEEE.
