Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Netherlands

Nederlands       English

Under the Dutch Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Management Regulations which came into force on January 1st 2005, for equipment that you buy from Hypertherm after August 13th 2005, Hypertherm is required to finance 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 purchase from Hypertherm replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the WEEE Management Regulations, Hypertherm is also required to finance the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Hypertherm after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

Hypertherm products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Hypertherm is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Hypertherm 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:

Hypertherm pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Management Regulations. Hypertherm pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Housing and The Environment (VROM) to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Management Regulations. You pay for transportation of your WEEE to Hypertherm's appointed recycler in the Netherlands.

Hypertherm 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 the Netherlands. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Hypertherm products is classed as non-hazardous waste.

It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to EARN. In order to meet the requirements for waste disposal as stipulated by the Environmental Management Act 2004, you should use one of the following carriers (which hold a valid Waste Carriers licence):

Waste Carrier Telephone Number Website
TNT Netherlands 0800 1234 www.tnt.com

For larger quantities of waste, you may want to contact the recycler directly to arrange and pay for alternative collection arrangements. The Hypertherm recycler in the Netherlands is:

Recycler Telephone Number Website
Coolrec BV +31 (0)40 257 1570 www.coolrec.nl

In order to help EARN identify Hypertherm equipment upon arrival at the recycler's address, please download the Recycling Label for Dutch Customers. Complete the label with your company details and attach it to a suitable box for transport to EARN.
