Why is used equipment recovered?

Electrical and electronic equipment contains such hazardous substances as: cadmium, mercury and PCB.

When it is no longer used, the equipment may not be disposed off to ordinary garbage containers since the hazardous chemical compounds are then released to soil, water and air.

Some of them – when released to water and subsequently to animal organisms – stay in animal fat cells and often find their way to our tables.

The hazard may be gradually mitigated solely by neutralising obsolete equipment.

The applicable regulations are set in appropriate EU directives. Subsequently, each member state introduced on 29 July 2005 its own act on disposal of obsolete electrical and electronic equipment.

The following regulations impose a number of statutory duties on companies marketing electrical and electronic equipment in Poland:

- Act of 29 July 2005 on obsolete electrical and electronic equipment, as amended,
- Act of 21 November 2008 amending the Act on obsolete electrical and electronic equipment and amending some other Acts. 

In those acts you will answers to the following questions:

1. Who is the Marketing Party?
2. What are the core duties of the Marketing Party?

- product marking,
- information to users,
- registration with the Chief Inspectorate of Environmental Protection,
- provision of financial security,
