Disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Under new government regulations issued in January 2007 we are all obliged and must play our part to ensure that the amount of waste on certain electrical and electronic equipment is reduced. Furthermore where waste is produced we must work together to ensure that it is separated from household waste, collected separately and ultimately disposed of in a sound environmental manner.
In essence some of the chemicals and metals in these electrical items can be harmful to soil and to 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.
Customers are encouraged to examine their electrical waste before throwing it away and in particular look for the rating plate. If the following logo is present you must not dispose of it in your household waste.
Please take this waste to your nearest Designated Collection Facility (DCF) where special facilities exist for correct disposal. To find your nearest DCF please visit the following web site:www.recycle-more.co.uk.
Type in your post code and the locations of the nearest DCFs will be displayed. Or alternatively contact us on 01244 288000 and one of our sales personnel can provide this for you.
