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. Please use one of the following disposal options instead:

Recycle:

To ensure that your WEEE is recycled in accordance with the regulations, you must 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). To locate your local site, contact your authority (http://www.recycle-more.co.uk/la/la_detailsla.aspx) or go directly to the listing of approved sites where you'll see they are arranged by county (http://www.valpak.co.uk/dts/page1734.aspx).

It is likely that approximately 1000 civic amenity (CA) sites will be upgraded to Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) where consumers of WEEE from private households can deposit their WEEE.

Hand the old equivalent product back to the retailer:

When you purchase a replacement product, we can "Take Back" your old equivalent product. You have 28 days from date of purchase, from us, to return your old equivalent item. This is by prior arrangement only and you are responsible for any postage costs incurred in returning it to us. Any retailer should accept it as a requirement under the WEEE Regulations (2006 No. 3289) unless they are a member of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS).

Please contact our offices for information if you wish to return to us for reprocessing.
