What is a WEEE?

Electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) are those that need an electronic current in order to operate, they are designed to make daily activities easier and to offer us new forms of leisure; their usage has increased as has our standard of living.

At the end of their useful life this equipment becomes Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Managing this waste is an environmental challenge for society due to their volume and toxicity.


This symbol identifies electronic and electrical equipment, warning us that they cannot be placed in regular rubbish containers and must be removed from authorized points.
