What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
How Are We Helping?
In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requiements 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).
Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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. We're proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.
Waste Battery Regulations
Electricpoint are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries.
You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person (PLEASE DO NOT POST).
Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at [www.recycle-now.com]
Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
