Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulation 2006
Since 1 July 2007, the UK’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations allow members of the public to deposit old electrical and electronic items at recycling sites across the UK, free of charge.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. The WEEE regulations aim to reduce the quantity of electrical and electronic items disposed of in this way, and will encourage everyone to play a part in protecting our environment for future generations.
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items on a like for like basis. Simply bring in your old electrical equipment to our showroom at the address below and we will deal with recycling on your behalf. Alternatively, if you have purchased on line you can send your old item to us within 28 days of purchase (unfortunately Pink Apple cannot refund the postage).
You can also locate your local recycling centre, at www.recyclenow.com to find your nearest recycling facility if this is more convenient.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
