Legal & ethical policies

What are WEEE and Battery recycling regulations?

The Waste Management (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations came into effect in the UK in 2005 and The Waste Management (Batteries and Accumulators) Regulations came into effect in the UK in 2009. These are designed to prevent and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by promoting its re-use, recycling, and disposal in an environmentally responsible manner.

The crossed-out wheelie bin symbol is marked on all electrical products and batteries that should not be disposed of in the normal waste stream but should be taken to an appropriate facility to enable their safe recovery and recycling.
