The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. 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). You can tell which products are classed as WEEE by the crossed wheelie bin logo that is displayed on the product. This logo is a sign to discourage the unofficial disposal of the item.To find more information on WEEE recycling and to locate your nearest recycling centre please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk.
