HID WEEE and Batteries

Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and batteries contain materials, components, and substances that may be hazardous and present a risk to human health and the environment when waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries are not handled correctly.

Electrical and electronic equipment and batteries are marked with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol indicating that electrical and electronic equipment and batteries should not be disposed of in the regular household waste stream but need to be collected separately. In case batteries contain more than 0,0005% mercury (Hg), 0,002% cadmium (Cd) or 0,004% lead (Pb) (by weight), the corresponding chemical symbol is displayed on the battery.

Users need to follow local recycling regulations to reduce adverse environmental impact in connection with WEEE and batteries’ disposal and increase opportunities for reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE and batteries. To facilitate this, free collection points are available in your area. Users are responsible for removing personal data from electronic devices prior to disposal. If possible, please remove old batteries or accumulators from the electronic device before you return it for recycling.

Once your product reaches the end of life, you can contact HID form information about the end-of-life treatment of WEEE and Batteries at https://www.hidglobal.com/compliance-certifications/compliance-case
