Our business unit for specialist trade distribution – UTAX – is one of the founders of EAR (national register for waste electric equipment (stiftung ear)), which coordinates the free disposal of electrical waste by manufacturers. This means that the appropriate return of the TA Triumph-Adler systems is a matter of course for us. TA Triumph-Adler GmbH is registered with EAR.
Good to know: Based on EU Directive 2012/19/EC (manufacturers’ take-back obligation), the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) regulates "the placing on the market, take-back and environmentally sound disposal of electrical and electronic equipment" in Germany. This means that consumers can return their old electrical and electronic equipment free of charge to the public collection points.
The manufacturers are obliged in turn to take back the equipment collected there and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly manner. Furthermore, electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market in private households must be marked with a crossed-out waste bin on wheels.
