WEEE recycling information for Baxter Customers in Europe
The European Union (EU) has implemented the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE - 2002/96/EC) Directive to ensure the proper collection, treatment and recycling of waste electronic products in the EU countries. As a producer of electronic and electrical equipment, Baxter complies with the WEEE Directive.
Under the Directive and its implementing regulations, when customers buy new Baxter electrical and electronic equipment they are entitled to:
- Send new equipment (purchased after 2005) back for recycling when this ultimately becomes waste*
- Send old equipment (purchased before 2005) for recycling on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis (this varies depending on the country)*
On these pages you can find information on how to dispose of your of Baxter product in an appropriate way and in accordance with the EU WEEE Directive.
Baxter products that are marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin WEEE symbol should not be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste. The marked equipment should be collected separately and returned for recycling. The separate collection and recycling of your waste equipment will help to protect human health and the environment. Baxter has contracted various waste management and recycling companies that handle our products across Europe.

*Please note that implantable medical devices or infected products are not regulated under the scope of the WEEE Directive and must be disposed of as infectious medical waste at the end users cost.
