WEEE symbol
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is the European Community directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) which, together with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, became European Law in February 2003. The WEEE Directive set collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods, with a minimum rate of 4 kilograms per head of population per annum recovered for recycling by 2009. The RoHS Directive set restrictions upon European manufacturers as to the material content of new electronic equipment placed on the market.
The symbol adopted by the European Council to represent waste electrical and electronic equipment comprised a crossed out wheelie bin with or without a single black line underneath the symbol. The black line indicates that goods have been placed on the market after 2005, when the Directive came into force. Goods without the black line were manufactured between 2002 and 2005. In such instances, these are treated as "historic weee" and falls outside re-imbursement via producer compliance schemes.

Understanding the European WEEE directive
That the waste products generated from broken and discarded electrical and electronic gadgets are growing is beyond doubt. These contain many hazardous materials and take forever to decompose.Managing this waste is a crucial problem. The European WEEE directive provides directions on how to manage the disposal of this kind of material. The European WEEE directive is also meant to be a guideline for the governments of the union to draw up suitable legislation. Learn more.
