WEEE: "Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment"
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. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled.
How do I know if my product is covered?
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed‐out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
The Distributor Take Back Scheme
ASK Outlets Ltd has joined the Government’s Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS). Membership of the DTS satisfies the WEEE obligations of distributors instead of them having to provide free in-store take-back. We make a financial contribution to the DTS, which is used in the development of waste electrical and electronic equipment collection facilities throughout the UK.
Where can I recycle?
You can return your WEEE via household amenity sites, the nearest one can be located by searching on http://www.recycle-more.co.uk/ . You can use your postcode to search for the nearest site that will take your products and drop it off.
