WEEE Regulations for disposal of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Look out for this symbol!
If the symbol shown here is found on any of our goods, it means that the product is classed as Electrical or Electronic Equipment and is covered by the WEEE Regulations.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (2006 No. 3289) (WEEE) have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection.
When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled.
To ensure that your WEEE is recycled in accordance with the regulations, you
should ensure that the goods are not put in the bin, but are separately disposed
of by taking the WEEE to your local designated collection facility. This would
normally be your local civic amenity site (recycling centre). You can find your
local approved site Here
In order to meet our obligations as a distributor as defined in the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations we have opted to become a full member of the Distributor Take back Scheme (DTS) as defined in regulation 35 of the WEEE Regulations. As a member of the DTS, we have made a financial contribution toward the development of the network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) for WEEE instead of collecting waste items instore. This financial contribution is described in paragraphs 83 to 88 of the UK WEEE guidance, and has been used to improve the WEEE collection facilities located at Local Authority Civic Amenity sites.
