Under the Italian Decree to implement 2002/96/EC Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive which came into force on
August 13, 2005, for equipment that you buy from Black Box after
December 31, 2010, Black Box 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*.
This is providing the weight of the old equipment is less than double
that of the new purchase. The old equipment that your new purchase from
Black Box replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.
Under the Decree, Black Box is also required to finance the collection,
treatment, recycling, and recovery of any new electrical and electronic
equipment that you buy from the dealer after December 31, 2010, 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 is:
You pay for transportation of your WEEE to Black Box’s
appointed recycler in Italy.
Black Box pays for the costs of treatment, recycling, and recovery
of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the Italian Decree.
Black Box pays for the costs of data management and reporting
to the Ministry of Environment to demonstrate compliance with all
administrative requirements of the Italian 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 Italy. All Historic and 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 to avoid the
equipment being classed as hazardous waste.
It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for
costs of collection and transportation to EARN.
In order to meet the Italian regulations for waste
disposal, you should use one of the following
carriers (which hold a valid Waste Carriers License):

label you should use. Please complete this label

Under Article 13 of the 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 within Italy.
The first WEEE recycling report will cover the period
July 2006 to June 2007. 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
