WASTE ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT REGULATIONS (WEEE)
Along with all other EU countries, the UK has signed up to reduce the amount of waste created from unwanted electrical equipment. The legislation aims to protect our environment from the potentially harmful effects of waste by minimising, reusing and recycling electrical waste. Separate collection of electrical products allows them to be recycled and avoids hazardous materials from going into landfill. When your electrical product reaches the end of it’s useful life, please help to look after our environment by arranging for it’s recycling.
- A supplier of replacement product may offer in store take-back when you purchase a replacement, or
- Your local civic amenity site will accept the old product without charge and arrange for its safe disposal. For information on your nearest site and for further advice on recycling, visit www.recycle-more.co.uk or contact a local retailer supplying electrical equipment.
