The WEEE Directive 2005 is EU legislation introduced with the aim of reducing quantities of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) disposed to landfill by increasing re-use and recycling. This in turn reduces the harmful effects caused by WEEE to our health and the environment.
You will notice the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the electrical equipment we provide to you. This indicates that these items should not be disposed of with general household waste but collected separately for reuse or recycling.
