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:
- 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)
- If you have purchased an item from us directly, and wish to return the old item you are replacing - you can do this by returning to us directly. Please note that you will have to pay for the cost of the return, and the old item being returned will need to fulfill the same function as the new item you have purchased. Please contact us here with details of the item and we can then provide you with a return address.
- 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.
