In compliance with the provisions of Italian Legislative Decree No. 49 of March 14, 2014, Luigi Lavazza S.p.A. (Lavazza), when supplying a new piece of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) produced by Lavazza for domestic use, following an order made by the Consumer through any remote communication technology, offers to pick up free of charge, on a one-for-one basis, the used electrical and electronic equipment for waste disposal, provided that it is equivalent to the new equipment supplied (equivalent WEEE). The collection of the equivalent WEEE will be carried out by Lavazza at the same address to which the new product was delivered and will take place after the delivery of the latter. To take advantage of the free collection of the equivalent WEEE, the Consumer must request the service when ordering the new product by contacting the Lavazza A Modo Mio Customer Service: Tel: 011 30 20 300 Fax: 011 23 98 333 Email: info@lavazzamodomio.it. The total number of equivalent WEEE collected may not be greater than the quantity of the products of the same type that have been purchased. Lavazza, on verifying the existence of the request and the order to supply a new EEE, will ensure that the collection of the equivalent WEEE takes place within 30 days from the date of the order, using authorised suppliers who will contact the Consumer to agree on the date of collection. On the agreed date, the Consumer must ensure that the equivalent WEEE is ready for collection (disconnected from the power supply, clean, etc.). Collection can be refused if there is any risk of contamination to the staff responsible for the collection or if it becomes apparent that the equivalent WEEE does not contain its essential components or contains waste other than WEEE. In any case, we would like to remind the Consumer that all WEEE may be disposed of at municipal waste disposal centres. Very small WEEE (external dimensions of less than 25 cm) can also be deposited free of charge, even without the purchase of a new equivalent product, at the sale outlets with a surface area of at least 400 m2 for electrical and electronic equipment and at the other outlets that have voluntarily activated this service.
