SIS committed to recycling its products
SIS professional electrical equipment that you use in your activities becomes Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) when it reaches the end of its life.
In France, the Environmental Code (articles R.543-172 and following) defines since 2005 the methods of the WEEE recycling sector management, based on the principle of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). Thus, any Producer placing professional EEE on the market must organize and finance the collection, depollution and recycling of its equipment.
Committed to a responsible approach, SIS has chosen to fulfill its regulatory obligations by financing a collective recycling channel, in order to pool resources with other manufacturers, distributors and importers. SIS is a member of ecosystem, a non-profit eco-organization approved by the public authorities, to coordinate the collection, depollution and recycling of professional WEEE.
The ecosystem services implementation by SIS in France testifies to a desire to be involved in an efficient sector to manage the end of life of its equipment placed on the market. It is also the means of guaranteeing you a reliable and quality service for the collection and recycling of your professional WEEE.
Your recycling efforts rewarded with tangible benefits
