WEEE Statement (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
NextComputing is committed to meeting all requirements of the WEEE directive (2012/19/EU).
Much of the WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that people throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
The WEEE directive requires that manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment who sell into EU countries: (1) label their equipment to notify customers that it needs to be recycled, and (2) ensure that their products are appropriately disposed of or recycled at the end of their lifespan.
