Compliance with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE)

Lexmark is committed to the environmentally responsible disposal of used electronics. 

As an environmentally responsible provider of products and services, Lexmark follows the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive 2012/19/EU.

The objectives of this Directive are: 

  • to preserve, protect and improve the quality of the environment
  • to protect human health
  • to utilise natural resources prudently and rationally

All printers, parts and consumables with electrical content are subject to WEEE regulations.

Compliance process

All Lexmark products with electronic content are now labelled per WEEE specifications and comply with European Standard EN50419. Products labelled with the WEEE symbol should be returned to a designated collection point for electrical and electronic equipment recycling, such as through LCCP or LECP.

The special «crossed out wheeled bin» symbol is placed on products to indicate that waste from electrical and electronic equipment must be returned to a designated collection point for waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling.


In the EU, Lexmark or its direct representative have joined a national collective scheme. These schemes provide a complete process from collection to recycling and reporting.

WEEE manuals are available on the Lexmark website at Customer Support>Device Support. Search the model, and then click the Manuals tab.
