Most batteries and electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), including printers, and mobile computers sold in Europe, must be disposed of in accordance with the WEEE Directive and the Batteries Directive respectively. The directives place responsibilities on "producers" and "distributors" of EEE and batteries regarding the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of EEE and batteries from both private households and users other than private households.
