I have been reading and researching the WEEE Directive with regards to Medical Devices (a new area for me) and I am just looking for clarification on the use of the crossed through wheelie bin symbol with black bar/bar with date of manufacture as I now seem to have got myself confused....
I was originally under the impression that the use of the crossed through wheelie bin symbol with black bar or date of manufacture indicated that the product could be re-processed/re-used etc under the WEEE directive.
However, on further reading (and perhaps I am reading too much!), that this symbol should be used for all electrical and electronic equipment put onto the market after August 2005, so that the user can identify that the product should not be disposed of through municpal waste. Is this correct?
Look forward to your help
