I am looking to purchase 50 monitors, but the manufacturer is saying that they will not be responsible for collecting and recycling the historic WEEE it is replacing. It is my understand that the producer of new WEEE is responsible for dealing with historic WEEE it replaces (where historic WEEE is pre-2005). The info on the environment agency and BERR websites seem to confirm this. If I'm wrong, can someone let me know why they wouldn't have to deal with old equipment.
If the producer continues to refuse to deal with the historic WEEE, any idea what recourse there is for this situation?
