Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

In accordance with the WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU), all European Aviat Networks products are marked with the symbol shown at the right. This symbol indicates that the marked equipment should be collected separately for recovery and/or recycling.


Aviat has a network of partners across Europe that handles the recovery and recycling of WEEE materials. Aviat will take back all new waste, defined as waste placed on the market after 13 August 2005. Regulations related to historical WEEE vary by country but generally place a responsibility on producers to take back waste on a one-for-one basis if new equipment is purchased. Please contact Aviat for guidance on your specific circumstances.

The end user is responsible for arranging and financing shipment of WEEE to Aviat’s chosen treatment facilities, as per Aviat Networks terms and conditions of business.
