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').

News

  • When Apple announced its iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro smartphones earlier this month, the upgraded cameras were perhaps the most talked about new feature. The iPhone 11 (the successor to the iPhone XR) now features two cameras, while the iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max (successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max) come with three cameras.
  • In effort to do away with display bezels and improve the camera performance on smartphones, hardware companies are coming up with unique designs. Take the new Vivo 17 Pro. It has a full front display, but instead of a selfie camera tucked underneath the screen, it uses a motorized pop-up assembly. We have seen that before, though in this case, Vivo is pitching it as the world's first dual pop-up selfie camera system. "Double the clarity, double the fun. Make the most of the ordinary moments with the world's first 32MP dual pop-up selfie and 48MP quad rear camera," Vivo says.
  • Valve has lost a court case in France that could have an impact on its business moving forward across the European Union. Four years ago, Valve was sued by a French consumer organization called UFC-Que Choisir. The suit sought to force Valve to make several changes to Steam, with one of them being to allow gamers to sell the games they no longer played.
