17. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The Company informs you that the presence of substances in electric and electronic appliances may have potential impacts on the environment and human health. This is why the Customer must dispose of any old item in a specific collection point: ECO SYSTEME collection point, local waste disposal centre, the nearest charity (e.g., Emmaus).
This sign on your Item means that it is an electric or electronic appliance to be recycled when you no longer use it.
Indeed, no electric and electronic appliances must be thrown in the bin or in the local recycling bins when they no longer work, are obsolete or have reached the end of their lives, in accordance with the 2005 European regulation applicable to all European countries and in particular France.
This regulation aims at limiting waste of raw materials and protecting the environment and human health by avoiding the leakage in the nature of substances contained in certain appliances.
In light of this regulation, when you purchase an Item on our Website, you contribute to financing the collection, reuse and recycling of your old appliance by paying an EEEW (electric and electronic equipment waste) eco-contribution. This eco-contribution is included in the price of the items, which is paid in full to the eco-organisations approved by the public authorities for managing the collection and recycling sector specific to EEEW. The amount of the eco-contribution is calculated by the eco-organisations and varies depending on the appliances and the processing means.
This is why it is recommended that the Customers dispose of any old item in a specific collection point for this purpose: ECO SYSTEME collection point, local waste disposal centre, nearest charity (e.g., Emmaus).
Any batteries inside the item or accumulators must be removed from the item and must be disposed of separately in the specific collection points.
Moreover, the Company undertakes to take back the former Item from the Customer, free of charge, as part of a 1 for 1 exchange.
Indeed, when you purchase a new equivalent Item, you may return the used Item, free of charge, for recycling.
For this, please contact the Company as soon as possible after your purchase and before receiving the dispatch notice of your new item, via the online contact form.
Upon receipt of your request by email, the Company will inform you of the procedure to follow to enable you to send back your appliance free of charge.
