Bitset d.o.o. implements its responsibilities from European directive and Slovenian environmental legislation by the principles of extended producer responsibility in the context of joint plans of handling waste electrical and electronic equipment, waste batteries and accumulators by the company TRIGANA d.o.o. - www.trigana.si.

HANDLING WASTE DEVICES AND PRODUCTS 

The symbol of a crossed out waste basket on a products, its packaging or manual means that the device should be recycled separately from household waste. It is your responsibility to dispose of it at designated waste collection locations of your municipal services. Waste devices can also be disposed of by taking them to the retailer or distributor when buying a similar product. This way you fulfil your legal obligation and contribute to saving the environment.

Separate waste collection and recycling WEEE prevent the negative impact of pollution and health risks that can arise because of improper disposal of equipment, and at the same time it enables recycling of component materials, which lessens the cost of energy and natural resources.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE BATTERIES AND ACCUMULATORS

The symbol of a crossed out waste basket on batteries and accumulators, their packaging or manual means that the batteries and accumulators should be recycled separately from household waste. It is your responsibility to dispose of it at designated waste collection locations of your municipal services. Waste batteries can also be disposed of by taking them to the retailer or distributor, without the requirement of buying a new product. This way you fulfil your legal obligation and contribute to saving the environment.

If the symbol above contains a chemical symbol it means that the new symbol in accordance with legislation denotes, that the battery or accumulator contains heavy metal (Hg = mercury, Cd = cadmium, Pd = lead) in higher quantities than required by law.

If a device contains batteries or accumulators that can not be simply removed without endangering the safety of the user, it has to be disposed of separately in a system of waste electric and electronic equipment collection.
