WEEE Regulations
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now U K law. The
legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste
electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high
street shops and Internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment
free of charge. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each
year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK’s WEEE ends
up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water
contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human
health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling
items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and
health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Distributors of new Electric
and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE
going into landfill sites. Fire & Fireplace Accessories are hereby obliged under these
regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis
when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product. However it is the consumer
that is responsible for organising the return of such goods, to us and the costs involved.
For example, if a customer bought a new EEE item from us we would accept their old
WEEE item and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers
must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item at their own
expense.
