Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

  • At the end of its useful life, your product is considered to be WEEE. As such, it is important to note that WEEE is not to be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste. It is to be collected separately such that it can be disassembled so its components and materials can be recycled, re-used, and recovered (burned for energy content in the production of electricity).
  • Public collection points have been set up by municipalities for the collection of WEEE, free of charge to you.
  • Please return your WEEE to the collection facility nearest your home or office.
  • If you have difficulty locating a collection facility, the retailer that sold you the product should accept your WEEE.
  • If you are no longer in contact with your retailer, please contact ACCO for assistance with this matter.
  • Recycling of WEEE is geared toward protecting the environment, protecting human health, preserving raw materials, improving sustainable development, and ensuring a better supply of commodities in the European Union. This will be achieved by retrieving valuable secondary raw materials and reducing the disposal of waste. You can contribute to the success of these goals by returning your WEEE to a collection facility.
  • Your product is marked with the WEEE symbol (wheelie bin with an X through it). This symbol is to inform you that the WEEE is not to be disposed of as unsorted municipal waste.


  • Operation of this machine is guaranteed for two years within the date of purchase, subject to normal use. Within the guarantee period, ACCO Brands Europe will at its own discretion either repair or replace the defective machine free of charge. Defects due to misuse or use for inappropriate purposes are not covered under the guarantee.
  • Proof of date of purchase will be required. Repairs or alterations made by persons not authorised by ACCO Brands Europe will invalidate the guarantee. It is our aim to ensure that our products perform to the specifications stated. This guarantee does not affect the legal rights which consumers have under applicable national legislation governing sale of goods.
  • This guarantee does not apply to Australian customers–see warranty on page 104.
