Under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
They should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. This is usually achieved by offering in-store take-back of WEEE (usually free, may require like-for-like item purchase) or online retailers may instead contribute financial support for WEEE recycling through the Distributor Take-back Scheme (DTS).
We are the manufacturer and online distributor of this product. We are members of the national Distributor Take-back Scheme (DTS), which provides financial support for WEEE recycling by local authorities. This scheme has been run by ‘Valpak’ for a number of years, their website further details how DTS funds have been allocated.
To recycle Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), please take it to:
- Your local recycling centre
- Any physical store that sells consumer electronics, they are obligated to take *very small WEEE items for free and without making any purchase (*items under 25cm along any edge).
If you have any further questions on the return or recycling of our products, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
For any other WEEE recycling questions, please contact your local environment agency.
