New WEEE

Steelcase is responsible for the financing of collection and recycling of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Steelcase after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste.

Steelcase has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN facility in The Netherlands. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Steelcase products is classed as non-hazardous waste.
