Under the French Decree on the Prevention and Management
of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
which came into force on August 13th 2005, the
financing of collection and recycling of any waste
electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) arising
from equipment bought before August 13th 2005
is the customers responsibility. This is regardless
of whether the equipment is being replaced by
a new piece of equipment from Black Box. Equipment
purchased before August 13th 2005 is referred
to as Historic WEEE.
Under the Decree, Black Box is required to finance the
collection, treatment, recycling and recovery
of any new electrical and electronic equipment
that you buy from them after August 13th 2005,
when that new equipment eventually becomes waste.
This is referred to as New WEEE.
Black Box products are very competitively priced. Any new
increase in operating costs for manufacturers
such as Black Box is normally reflected in a price
increase in the product. However, instead of increasing
the prices of our products Black Box 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 are:
You pay for transportation of your WEEE to Black Box’s
appointed recycler in France.
Black Box pays for the costs of treatment,
recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet
the targets set by the Decee.
Black Box pays for the costs of data management and
reporting to the Agency for Environment and
Energy Management (ADEME) to demonstrate compliance
with all administrative requirements of the Decree.
Black Box 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 facility in France . All New WEEE that
arises from the purchase of Black Box products
is classed as non-hazardous waste
Black Box customers sending equipment for recycling are
advised that you MUST remove all batteries PRIOR
to collection for the following reasons:
To avoid the equipment being classed as hazardous
waste under the EU Hazardous Waste Directive
To ensure the equipment south of Paris is classed
as 'Green Waste' for transfrontier shipment
across the national border to Spain
It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for
costs of collection and transportation to EARN.
Under Decree 98-679 1998 Relating to Road Transport,
the Trade and the Broking of Waste, you are free
to use any carrier you wish to collect and transport
non-hazardous WEEE to the EARN recycler,
providing the total weight of equipment to be
transported is less than 500 kg.
In order to help EARN identify Black Box
equipment upon arrival to the recyclers' address,

recycling label to be used. Please complete this
label with your company details and attach it
to a suitable box for transport to EARN.

» Recycling Label for France Customers (South of Paris)
Under Article 14 of the WEEE Decree, Black Box dealers
must provide annual information of the quantities
and categories of electrical and electronic equipment
put on the market, reused, recycled and recovered
The first WEEE recycling report will cover the period
August 2005 to July 2006. EARN will prepare
the recycling data report for Black Box. Information
in the EARN recycling data report will
be summarised on the Black Box website when it
