Lexmark is advocating full product stewardship, including the proper disposal of electronic equipment at the end of its useful life. That’s why we support and encourage the implementation of the European WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). N° 2002/96/CE of the 27th January 2003.
All Lexmark products put on the market since the 13th of August 2005(household and professional) are marked with the “crossed out wheeled bin” symbol.
In compliance with the WEEE Directive, all information about the End of Life Management process for the printing equipment of household or professional users is available on the deliverables driver CD delivered with the printer.
Lexmark has set-up a fully compliant logistic system for the transport of your waste back to our recycling partner’s facilities. We have contracted with partners who operate European-wide. Through this system, Lexmark guarantees that the collected WEEE will be treated in accordance with the EU- Directive and beyond, with recycling and reuse targets higher than 99% (in average component weight).
Lexmark collection schemes vary from country to country, depending on each national WEEE legislation and on Lexmark local services offers.Thus, we advise you to contact your local Lexmark office or representative for further information.
