Recycling of Electronic and Electrical Equipment
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
The Book People Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
Customers must return, at their cost, their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Alternatively, you may find that you have more convenient local recycling facilities (to find your nearest recycling sites for waste, electrical and electronics products, contact your local Council or visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and type your postcode into the Recycling Bank Locator).
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Qwerkity offer a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return waste batteries to Qwerkity, Parc Menai, Bangor, LL57 4FB.
Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.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.
