E-waste in Europe: Romania
Collection and Recycling Arrangements
Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Romania
Transposition of the WEEE Directive was completed in Romania at the end of 2005 through five Government Decisions and Ministerial Orders. Under these Regulations, for equipment that you buy from TE after January 1st 2007, TE is required to provide arrangements for 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 fromTE replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.
Under these Regulations, 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 the dealer after January 1st 2007, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.
TE products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as TE is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, TE has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers. We believe in being transparent with you on any new environmental costs that our products need to address.
Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:
- TE pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Regulations in Romania.
- TE pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA) to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Regulations in Romania.
- you pay for transportation of your WEEE to TE ' appointed recycler in Romania.
TE has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN recycling facility in Romania. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of TE products is classed as non-hazardous waste.
It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the recycler. Under Waste Management Regulations in Romania, you are free to use any carrier you wish to collect and transport non-hazardous WEEE to the EARN recycler.
For larger quantities of waste you may wish to contact the recycler directly in order to arrange and pay for an alternative collection method. The TE recyclers in Romania are
|Stena DTM Srl||004 021 457 06 50|
|Stena DTM Srl||004 0234 356 808|
|Stena DTM Srl||004 0264 231 263|
There is no legal requirement that non-hazardous WEEE be accompanied by documentation when transported in Romania. However, in order to enable EARN to identify TE equipment upon arrival at the recycler's address, please download the recycling label for Romania (Bucharest, Ilfov County) , the recycling label for Romania (Darmanesti, Bacau County), or the recycling label for Romania (Apahida, Cluj County). Complete the label with your company details and attach it to a suitable box for transport to EARN.
