WEEE Compliance Policy
1.1 WHAT ARE THE WEEE REGULATIONS?
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (2006) (WEEE Regulations) aim to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it. The WEEE Regulations also aim to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electrical and electronic equipment.
1.2 RECYCLING YOUR OLD ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT IS EASY!
You can recycle your electrical and electronic devices, including routers, free of charge at your local recycling centre. To locate your nearest recycling centre, and to find more information about WEEE recycling, please visit the
Recycle More website
) and type in your postcode.
1.3 WHY RECYCLE?
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste, but many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment can end up in landfill where hazardous substances may leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.
We're proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for unwanted electrical equipment.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.
1.4 HOW ARE WE HELPING?
In the UK, distributors must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment with the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS) which is designed to meet the obligations of distributors without the need to offer free in store take back. Under the current scheme, this means that Zen's obligations and collection responsibilities will be met until 31 December 2012.
