Manufacturers, importers and resellers have a legal obligation to care for the collection and recycling of used EEE and used batteries. They have to participate in respective collection and recycling schemes and take care of the financing of these systems.

Manufacturers, importers and resellers have to warn their customers about the presence of batteries in their products and to remind them of the regulations on proper disposal. Used batteries and electronic equipment contain substances that are potentially harmful to the environment and health but also valuable when they are recovered from the recycling process.

Please hand in your used batteries, accumulators and electrical appliances at your local household recycling centre and do not throw them in the household waste. This disposal is a legal obligation and is free of charge.

WEEE Regulations:

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 were introduced in the UK to address the problems our environment faces with regards to waste electrical and electronic equipment commonly known as (WEEE).

How to identify WEEE?

Look for the crossed out wheelie bin logo on your goods, it means that the product is covered by the WEEE regulations and must be disposed of in a responsible manner.

What should you do with your old and broken WEEE products?

When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put it in your domestic waste bin as it will not be recycled. We can all help the environment by recycling old electrical and electronic equipment.
