Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
As a Distributor of electrical equipment in the UK we are proud to be members of the national Distributor Takeback Scheme (“DTS”) and to fulfil our requirements as a responsible retailer under the Regulations through our financial support of the DTS.
The quantity of unused electrical goods is one of the most rapidly growing types of waste in the UK. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013 (“Regulations”) were introduced to avoid these goods ending up as unsorted municipal waste.
Electrical goods contain harmful substances which, if unchecked, have the potential to cause contamination, harming human health and damaging the environment. The Regulations aim to reduce the quantity of electrical goods going to landfill sites and improve recovery and recycling rates of these products by providing for methods whereby members of the public can recycle old electrical goods free of charge.
Electrical equipment is now marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol to easily identify it. This serves as a reminder that it can be recycled and should not be thrown in a normal bin.
