Information for end consumers

Electrical and electronic appliances must not be disposed of with household waste at the end of their service life. Ask your local authority for information on how to proceed. Blum electrical and electronic appliances meet the requirements of the WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU.

Electrical and electronic appliances are collected separately, which enables old appliances to be reused or recycled, and their materials to be reused. This is intended to prevent any hazardous materials that may be contained in the appliances from damaging the environment and health during disposal.

In most cases, the entire appliance does not need to be disposed of according to the WEEE guidelines, but only the part that is equipped with electrical components. Please refer to the disassembly instructions for information on this. There are free collection points for returning electrical and electronic appliances in your area.

WEEE Directive 2012/19/EC

Under the WEEE Directive the manufacturer/importer of electronic components is also responsible for their disposal and is required to register. We at Blum fulfil this responsibility. The official registration information at the responsible authority in your country is as follows.

WEEE registration number: WEE/BU3530YA
