The following statement about the disposal of Sensortechnik Meinsberg devices
taken out of service apply exclusively to our customers in Germany. Customers in other EU countries should inquire with their local
represantative and/or their local authorities to obtain relevent information.
One of the most important goals of the EU Standard 2002/96/EC is to minimize the disposal of old electrical/electronical equipment together with non-sorted residential waste and to achieve a high degree of waste separation and recycling of old electrical/electronic devices. Xylem Analytics Germany GmbH is a company that is committed to our environment and we fully support this goal. Old electrical/electronic devices can contain substances that can be hazardous to the environment and humans and that should definitely not be disposed of together with residential/municipal waste.
Proper disposal of Sensortechnik Meinsberg instruments taken finally out of use
Can WEEE originating from Sensortechnik Meinsberg be handed over to the communal
collection points for WEEE?
The answer is expressly no for the following reason:
Sensortechnik Meinsberg instruments are designed for professional use and accordingly they have been approved as B-to-B (business to business) products by the competent German authority Stiftung EAR (Elektro-Altgeräte Register), where Xylem Analytics Germany GmbH as producer is registered with the brand Sensortechnik Meinsberg under WEEE-Reg.-Nr. DE 29884659. The B-to-B classification implies that Sensortechnik Meinsberg does not have to pick up WEEE at the communal collection points as the ElektroG demands it from the producers of consumer EEE, and consequently our products are excluded from this path of disposal.
Instead we offer our domestic customers to take back no longer used instruments of Sensortechnik Meinsberg produced from 2006 on and properly dispose them free of charge.
Customers in other EC countries than Germany should contact their local distributor and/or their local authorities for correspondent information.
