The European Union adopted Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) with their publication in the Official Journal of the European Union on February 13th, 2003. WEEE is for the prevention, reuse, recycling and recovery to reduce the disposal of waste from electrical and electronic equipment. Requirements for WEEE went into effect on August 13th, 2005. Current Requirements for the Revised WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU went into effect on July 4th, 2012 and Digi is compliant with this directive. Digi's products are generally easy to separate through simple mechanical separation of the enclosure from the assembly for recycling as standard electronic waste.
