Printer Recycling

Brother machines are collected and recycled in accordance with European legislation, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE). The legislation outlines a series of targets companies must meet to reduce the amount of waste electronics going to landfill. Each of our sales facilities is a member of a WEEE compliance organisation or scheme in their country, which recover and recycle WEEE on behalf of companies to meet the targets set under the directive. 

How to recycle an old Brother printer and other machines

It would be worth remembering that all electrical equipment contains both valuable components and very harmful substances and their disposal in environmentally unfriendly way can cause great harm to the environment and human health. When transferring old electrical equipment for recycling, the benefits are both for nature, from which new raw materials are taken again, and for the environment - as pollution is reduced, because there are fewer stages in the production process chain.

In order to reach recycling, end-of-life electrical equipment must be transferred to sorted waste areas or given to waste management companies providing services of collecting and exporting end-of-life and invalid household appliances, which are later tilled in accordance with environmental requirements. There are many companies providing electronic waste recycling services in Estonia. The list of companies can be found here.
