Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is UK Law. The legislation aims to ask producers to be responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

The regulations that are in place allow us to help the customer in the ethical and safe disposal of their redundant IT equipment.

We as a internet retailer allow our customers to return their redundant IT equipment such as laptops and computers free of charge and we dispose of such equipment on their behalf.

This is limited to for example if you purchase a new laptop from ourselves you are able to send us your old one and we will dispose of it correctly for you.

 


WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations implement the EU WEEE Directive and affect producers of most types of ICT equipment.

In the UK, Government estimates show that we throw away over two million tonnes of electrical waste each year, mostly into landfill. The WEEE Regulations aim to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic waste going to landfill sites and improve recovery and recycling rates of these products.

The WEEE Regulations apply to all businesses that import, manufacture or re-brand electrical and electronic equipment in the UK (known as 'producers').
