WEEE Directive, Waste Management (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) WEEE Regulations (S.I. 149 of 2014) plus The European Union (Batteries and Accumulators) Regulations 2014 (S.I. No. 283 of 2014), as amended.
What is "Free product takeback"?
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is taken back free of charge on a one for one, like for like basis. Waste batteries including rechargeable batteries are taken back free of charge. You are not obliged to make any purchase when returning old batteries. Each local authority must also accept household WEEE and small batteries free of charge at its recycling facilities. All WEEE and waste batteries must be recycled and should not be placed in any of your household wheelie bins. Make sure you always recycle all your old electrical goods and batteries.
How do I organise free takeback of my item?
We, as the retailer, can collect WEEE items upon delivery of your new product or within 15 days of delivery of your new product. Simply call us on 1800 283 082 to ensure arrangements are put in place and to allow us to contact you with a 24-hour notice of delivery and collection.
How do I recycle my item at a local civic amenity?
Each local civic amenity must accept household WEEE and waste batteries free of charge from members of the public. Please contact your local authority for details of your local civic amenity. Local authorities cannot charge gate fees for WEEE or waste batteries.
