The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Hifi-Tower is now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person. Please do not post.
Portable batteries include the following types: AA, AAA, C, and D
Alternatively, you may find it more convenient to dispose of your portable batteries at your local waste portable battery recycling facility
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. Please note use of our premises for this purpose does not include any retail or service, there will simply be a box you can drop off your portable batteries.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations
UK households dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste every year. This is the equivalent of 150,000 double decker buses and would be enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium 6 times over. Much of the UK’s electronic waste ends up in landfill sites, where toxins put communities at risk. Failure to segregate any type of recyclable material in the home will usually result in items being disposed of in a landfill site (buried in the ground in the UK) or being incinerated. The UK WEEE Regulations require that businesses involved in the supply of electrical equipment take an active role in ist collection and recycling.
The aim of the legislation is to: Make good use of the materials that make up old electrical equipment by recycling rather than disposing in landfill. Prevent the negative environmental effects of sending often hazardous electrical equipment to landfill. So that you can get your old electrical products recycled, we have made a financial contribution toward the development of improved recycling collection points (known as ‘Designated Collection Facilities’) throughout the UK through our membership of the Distributor Take Back Scheme. To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol. You can take any old electrical equipment to participating civic amenity sites (often known as ‘household waste recycling centres’) run by their local councils. Please remember that this equipment will be further handled during the recycling process, so please be sure to remove any non-electrical product (for example food waste).
