What is WEEE?
From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation. This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
The consumer has a significant role to play in reducing the impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the environment, through re-using or recycling such articles. Some of the components used in electrical and electronic equipment can contain hazardous substances that can damage the environment and present a risk to human health if not properly disposed of.
The crossed out wheelie-bin symbol on products is to remind you that Waste Electrical and Electronic products, batteries and accumulators should not be disposed of with household waste. If you are unable to re-use or recycle your article it should be disposed of at a civic amenity site/local authority recycling facilities.
Waste Batteries
Portable waste batteries, including rechargeable batteries, may be taken back to any Debenhams store, or any other retailer operating an in-store take back scheme, for recycling free of charge. There is no obligation to purchase when returning an old battery.
What is REACH?
REACH is the European Union regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. Please click here for details on how to contact us about your 'REACH' enquiry.
