From 1st July 2007 the UK must comply with the requirements of the European WEEE Directive which requires the collection and recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.
If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities.
This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).
Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre.
To find your nearest centre, visit the www.recycle-more.co.uk website and type in your postcode.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.
To meet the requirements of the directive we are a member of the Valpak WEEE Distributor scheme.
