How do you recover plastic from discarded electrical and electronic equipment?
Objective criteria, such as weight and power, determine whether an appliance is household or professional. Both kinds can be present in a company or organisation, and this is called professional waste. Some examples:
a laptop = household
belongs to the group of portable computers/electronic business agendas (incl. computers with built-in printer and/or transmitting equipment and translation computers and all possible combinations including calculators, GPS, ...).
a hot drinks dispenser = professional
an electric or electronic dispenser, meant for the sale or provision, via self-service, of primarily chilled and/or heated products, which operates by means of entering a coin, a bank note, a token, a card/key or in any other way
a photocopier 35 kg or less = household
one of the unifunctional photocopiers and/or multifunctional appliances that combine several functions (fax, printer, scanner, copier, ...) weighing 35 kg or less
a photocopier more than 35 kg = professional
one of the unifunctional photocopiers and/or multifunctional appliances that combine several functions (fax, printer, scanner, copier, ...) weighing more than 35 kg
