The law prohibits disposal of WEEE equipment, under penalty of fines.
Issues related to the handling of waste electrical and electronic equipment are regulated by the Act of 29 July 2005 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (Journal of Laws of 2005, No. 180, item. 1495), which constitutes a transposition of Directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 January 2003 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (OJ EU L 37, 13 February 2003, p. 34, and L 345, 31 December 2003, p. 106; OJ EU Polish special edition, ch. 15, v. 7, p. 359).
