12. WEEE Regulations
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or WEEE) Regulations are now U.K. law. All European member States including the U.K. have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites.
It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because:
- Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.
- WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
THESITEBOX.COM are “doing our bit” under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product.
For example, if a customer bought a new 12V Drill Driver from us we would accept their old 12V Drill Driver and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Customers do not have to pay for the transportation of their WEEE to our premises.
If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us at the telephone number / E-mail address below:
- Tel: 0845 372 0033
- Email: email@example.com
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
13. The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Tones Ties Ltd (THESITEBOX.COM) are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries, we will accept back replacement batteries as supplied, batteries have to be returned in person only during our opening hours, Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm. We will not accept batteries that are posted back so Do Not Post Old Batteries.
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.
