Spain – Collection and Recycling
Radware equipment is sold in Spain by dealers. The dealer acts as the importer of the equipment into Spain and has the legal responsibility to:
- Register as the WEEEproducer in Spain
- Finance arrangements for collection and recycling of WEEEarising from Radware equipment that the dealer sells in Spain
Under the Spanish Royal Decree 208/2005 on Electrical and Electronic Equipment and Management of its Waste which came into force on August 13th 2005, for equipment that you buy from a Radware dealer after August 13th 2005, the dealer is required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that your new purchase replaces, on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. The old equipment that your new purchase from the Radware dealer replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.
Under the Decree, the dealer is also required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from the dealer after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as new WEEE.
Radware has decided to provide WEEEcollection and recycling on behalf of its dealers in Spain.
Radware products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Radware is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products Radware 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:
- You pay for transportation of your WEEEto Radwares appointed recycler in Spain.
- Radware pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEEto meet the targets set by the Decree
- Radware pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the General Directorate of Quality and Environmental Assessment of the Ministry of the Environment to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the Decree
Radware has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN facility in Spain . All Historic and New WEEEthat arises from the purchase of Radware products is classed as non-hazardous waste*
It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to EARN. Under Spain waste management procedures, you are free to use any carrier you wish to collect and transport non-hazardous WEEEto the EARN recycler, providing the weight of equipment to be transported is less than 1,000 kg.
