eWaste and battery recycling
Our products are designed and manufactured with high-quality materials and components that are recyclable and reusable. Since our products contain batteries, we are required by law to advise you of the following:
Portable and rechargeable batteries and electrical and electronic equipment must not be disposed of with your household waste.They can be sent for recycling by placing them into collection containers that can be found at many retail outlets and other public buildings across the UK.
Have a read through the information below to learn about how and why recycling is an environmentally friendly and responsible way to dispose of your batteries.
Recycling your old electricals is easy!
Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s 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 human health.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. For further information, please also see: https://www.gov.uk/electricalwaste-producer-suppli... and https://www.gov.uk/battery-waste-supplier-reponsib...
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 distributor, we are meeting our legal obligations as a distributor in accordance with The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 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).
