13. COLLECTION OF CUSTOMER'S OLD ITEMS:
As a retailer/distributor, we as a company are compliant with the regulations regarding 'Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment' (WEEE) legislation.
We Offer our customers free 'take back' on their waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). This is done on a like-for-like basis. Therefore, if a customer purchases for example a new television from us, they can only return an old television back. The customer has 28 days in which to return the old item to us. If the item was purchased online, the customer is responsible for any postage costs incurred returning it to us. We can charge a reasonable fee for collection.
Helping to recycle your electrical equipment
Why are we involved?
Recycling facilities are now available for all customers at which you can deposit your old electrical products. This is a requirement under UK and European legislation (The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment – or WEEE – Directive). The aim of the legislation is to;
- Make good use of the materials that make up old electrical equipment by recycling rather than disposing in landfill.
- Prevent the negative environmental effects of sending often hazardous electrical equipment to landfill.
As a conscientious business, West End DJ has chosen to group together with other retailers in joining the ‘Distributor Take Back Scheme’. Through this scheme, we have paid toward the provision of improved of recycling facilities for our customers.
How does this work in practice?
Customers will be able to take any old electrical equipment to participating civic amenity sites (often known as ‘household waste recycling centres’) run by their local councils. Please remember that this equipment will be further handled during the recycling process, so please be considerate when depositing your equipment.
Funding collected through the Distributor Take Back Scheme has been distributed between all Local Authorities in the UK to ensure the provision of improved recycling facilities. Producers of these products will then ensure that deposited items are taken away and recycled.
Where to dispose of electrical equipment?
Wherever practical, old electrical waste should not be disposed of with your household waste.
You can locate your closest participating collection site at www.recycle-more.co.uk (please remember to have your postcode to hand).
UK households dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste every year. This is the equivalent of 150,000 double decker buses and would be enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium 6 times over.
Much of the UK’s electronic waste ends up in landfill sites, where toxins put communities at risk. Failure to segregate any type of recyclable material in the home will usually result in items being disposed of in a landfill site (buried in the ground in the UK) or being incinerated.
To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol.
