Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Belgium

Regulations concerning the management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Belgium are implemented at a regional administrative level:

  • In the Brussels Capital region by an amendment to the existing Producer Responsibility Decree which came into force on June 3rd 2005
  • In the Flanders (Flemish) Region by amendments to the Waste Prevention and Management Ordinance (VLAREA) which came into force on December 1st 2004
  • In the Wallonia region by an amendment to the existing Producer Responsibility Decree which came into force on June 3rd 2005

Under the WEEE Regulations for each Administrative Region of Belgium, for equipment that you buy from Barco after August 13th 2005, Barco finances arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of WEEE that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. The old equipment that your new Barco product replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the Regulations in each Administrative Region, Barco also finances arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Barco after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

In Belgium, Barco has joined the Recupel compliance scheme to manage all aspects of WEEE reporting and of recycling of B2C equipment.

For the collection and recycling of B2B equipment, please contact Barco directly via green.compliance@barco.com
