According to the Dutch Law discarded electrical equipment must be collected separately and processed in an environment justified way. This obligation is a shared responsibility of manufacturer and customer.
From August 2005 on electrical equipment is labelled with the symbol as shown alongside (garbage can with a cross over it and a black bar below). In this way it is indicated that electrical equipment being discarded must be recycled separately. All scales ever sold since August 2005 by Henk Maas Weegschalen B.V. have been labelled indeed with this symbol.
In order to process the discarded devices in a justifying way Henk Maas Weegschalen B.V. has concluded a contract with an electronics specialised recycling company.
