WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK
law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection,
treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations
also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and
internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment
free of charge. 
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each
year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. 
  • Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other
    toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can
    have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human
  • 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. is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. 
For example, if a customer bought a new Baby Monitor from us we would accept their old Baby Monitor and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. 
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
