WEEE Directive Compliance

What is WEEE?

WEEE Wheelie Bin SymbolWEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and is a rapidly growing source of waste products in Europe. WEEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, could have a serious detrimental effect on both the environment and on human health. To help customers identify Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment, a crossed out wheelie bin logo will be displayed on the product. These products should not be disposed of with ordinary household waste or sent to landfill.

What are WEEE regulations?

From 2007 onwards, all manufacturers and retailers within the European Union are liable to offer take-back, treatment and recycling of electrical equipment that has reached the end of its life. This process helps reduce the amount electronic or electrical equipment that is being sent to landfill sites and increase the amount of potentially hazardous materials that can be safely recycled.
