Denmark

Denmark has adopted a different approach to implementing the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive from that of other EU Member States. The WEEE Directive is transposed by the Danish Order for WEEE which came into force on August 1st 2005. Under the Order, local authorities must establish a collection system for WEEE from private households (B2C WEEE) and also for WEEE from businesses (B2B WEEE). The collection system must be established by April 1st 2006 and can be in the form of:

  • a bring-it yourself scheme. This is a designated site within the Municipality assigned to receive B2C and B2B WEEE;
  • a collection scheme. This is a scheme whereby a Municipality or company gather WEEE from private households and business addresses;

Denmark is the only EC Member State in which businesses can supply their WEEE for collection and recycling alongside household WEEE through local authority collection schemes.

When equipment that you bought before April 1st 2006 becomes waste (known as Historic WEEE) we recommend that you make use of the collection scheme provided free-of-charge by your local authority. If you buy a new item of Illumina equipment after April 1st 2006 to replace equipment purchased before this date (on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis) and do not want to use the free collection scheme provided by the local authority, Illumina can arrange to collect the Historic WEEE from you at your request. However, the costs for providing this service may be included in the purchase price of the new equipment that Illumina supplies to you.

For equipment that you purchase from Illumina after April 1st 2006, when this equipment becomes waste (known as New WEEE), we recommend that you also make use of the collection scheme provided free-of-charge by your local authority. If you not want to use the free collection scheme provided by the local authority, Illumina can arrange to collect the New WEEE from you at your request. However, there may be an associated cost for providing this service to you.

Details about your local authority's free collection scheme are provided by the Danish WEEE System http://www.dpa-system.dk/ You can also contact the technical administration team at your local authority for details about the free collection scheme that it provides.

Netherlands

Under the Dutch Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Management Regulations which came into force on January 1st 2005, Illumina is responsible for the financing of collection and recycling of the following equipment:

  • Any electrical and electronic equipment that you bought from Illumina before August 13th 2005 (referred to as Historic WEEE), which is being replaced by a new piece of equipment bought from Illumina; and
  • Any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Illumina after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste (referred to as New WEEE).

For any other waste electrical and electronic equipment bought before August 13th 2005 which is being replaced by an item of Illumina electrical and electronic equipment, the environmentally sound disposal of this other equipment is the customers responsibility.

Illumina products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Illumina is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Illumina has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers. We believe in being transparent with you on any new environmental costs that our products need to address.

Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:

  • Illumina pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Management Regulations.
  • Illumina pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Housing and The Environment (VROM) to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Management Regulations.
  • You pay for transportation of your WEEE to Illumina' appointed recycler in the Netherlands.

Illumina has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN recycling facility in the Netherlands. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Illumina products is classed as non-hazardous waste.

You should choose to use a Waste Carrier who is suitably authorised to transport non-hazardous waste in the Netherlands. It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the EARN recycler. In order to meet the requirements for waste disposal as stipulated by the Environmental Management Act 2004, you can use the following carrier (which holds a valid Waste Carriers licence):

Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Norway

Norway is not part of the European Union and therefore does not have a legal obligation to implement the WEEE Directive into national law. However, an agreement under the European Economic Area (EEA) means that Norway is required to adopt broadly similar environmental legislation to that passed in the EU. As such, Norway has implemented its own WEEE legislation which is implements many of the requirements of the WEEE Directive.

Illumina has joined local compliance RENAS in Norway to finance the recycling of obligated Illumina WEEE.

To arrange the collection of Illumina WEEE for recycling, please contact your nearest local waste collection point.  You can find your nearest collection point and the collection point’s contact details via the following link:

The old equipment that your new purchase from Illumina replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the Decree, Illumina is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Illumina after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as new WEEE.

However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Illumina has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers.

Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:

  • Illumina pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the Decree.

It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the recycler. Under Spanish waste management procedures, you are free to use any carrier you wish to collect and transport non-hazardous WEEE to the EARN recycler, providing the weight of equipment to be transported is less than 1000 kg.

For larger quantities of waste you may wish to contact the recycler directly in order to arrange and pay for an alternative collection method. The EARN recycling facilities in Spain are:

Switzerland

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is a European Directive which requires producers to make arrangements for the collection and recycling of WEEE. The Directive is transposed into national law by EU Member States. Switzerland is not a member of the European Union or of the European Economic Area, and therefore has no obligation to follow EU policy.

Producer responsibility for the take-back of electrical and electronic equipment in Switzerland is covered by the Ordinance on the Return, Take-back and Disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (ORDEE). The Ordinance came into force on July 1st 1998 and an amendment came into force in January 2005 which extended the scope of the Ordinance to increase the number of categories of electrical and electronic equipment which are covered.

The requirements of ORDEE are different from the requirements of the WEEE Directive. In particular, the categories of equipment which are covered by ORDEE do not include any of the types of equipment produced by Illumina. ORDEE does not place any requirements on Illumina, or any distributors of Illumina products, to provide collection and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment in Switzerland.

Taiwan, China

Illumina products are sold in Taiwan by dealers and distributors. The dealers and distributors act as the importer of the equipment into Taiwan.

Illumina has established a recycling arrangement with TES-AMM to manage all aspects of WEEE collection, treatment, recycling, and recovery in Taiwan. Please contact TES-AMM below to arrange collection of the WEEE.
