What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or
Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate
collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
How are we helping?
In the UK, distributors
including retailers must provide a system that 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).
