Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

The Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations require producers and retailers of WEEE to be responsible for the financing of the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE.

It means that consumers of household WEEE are entitled to return the WEEE back Free of Charge, either to retail outlets (under certain conditions) or other authorised facilities, including recycling centres.

Recycling Electrical and Electronic Equipment reduces the impact on natural resources as batteries contain components that can be used again if recovered properly.

Recycling benefits the environment, society, and the economy.
