Directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE Directive)

The WEEE Directive aims to encourage everyone to reuse and recycle electrical and electronic equipment. Under the WEEE Directive, producers are responsible for financing the management of waste from the electrical and electronic equipment that they put on the market. As a producer of electrical and electronic equipment, Rising Star Games is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations relating to WEEE ensuring that we are endeavouring to fulfil our environmental responsibilities at all times. Rising Star Games cooperates with authorised regional institutions to facilitate the proper collection, recovery, recycling, and environmentally sound disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.

As of 1st April 2007 all producers of electrical and electronic items are required to incorporate this “crossed-out wheeled bin” symbol on their products. This symbol will indicate that the item should not be disposed of through household waste and should be properly disposed of via a retailer take back scheme or their local civic amenity site licensed to accept WEEE.
