WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The New government regulations called The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations encourages people to arrange collection or recycling of old electrical products, rather than throwing them away. Hifix.co.uk endorses these regulations and to ensure compliance we operate a Take Back Scheme to enable our customers to return on a like for like basis old electrical equipment. We take responsibility to ensure that this waste is recycled and aim to both reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment waste and to encourage everyone to reuse and recycle.

Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.

Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.

This symbol on the product or in the instructions means that your electrical and electronic equipment should be disposed at the end of life separately from your household waste, so this is more convenient for you and better for the environment with less landfill.

From 1 July 2007, new government regulations called the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations came into force to encourage people to arrange collection or recycling of old electrical products, rather than throwing them away
