Disposal of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Under new government regulations now in force we are all obliged and must play our part to ensure that the amount of waste on certain electrical and electronic equipment is reduced going forward. Furthermore where it is produced as waste we must work together to ensure that it is separated from household waste, collected separately and ultimately disposed of in a sound environmental manner (recycled and recovered).
In essence some of the chemicals and metals in these electrical items can be harmful to the soil and human health when disposed of in landfill sites. By adopting the new regulations and working together we can all reduce the amount of landfill and resulting contamination.
For your part as the customer you are encouraged to examine your electrical waste before throwing it away and in particular look for the rating plate and if the following logo is present you must not throw it in your household waste.
