What is WEEE?

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Legislation (WEEE)

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive came into force on 1st July 2007. This regulation was implemented to reduce the quantity of electronic waste being sent to landfill. Under this legislation old electrical items must not be disposed of with standard waste, but should be taken to a central collection point for recycling.

 

Why recycle?

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 also human health.

Wahl U.K are proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.

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!

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 responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us 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).

Sweeep Kuusakoski currently handles the recycling of our WEEE small consumer products.

You can help too!
