Recycling and WEEE

WEEE "Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment"

What is WEEE?

·         The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (2006 No. 3289) (WEEE) is a new UK legislation designed to address the environmental impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment

·         The regulations have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection

·         Both AV Parts Master and our customers can assist in recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment

·         We cannot recycle it unless you return it, so our customers have an important role to play in helping us to recycle

·         AV Parts Master will undertake their responsibility as both a Producer and a Distributor to dispose of these goods in line with European legislation


How do I know if my product is covered?

Look out for this symbol:

·         If the symbol shown here is found on any of your goods, it means that the product is covered by the WEEE Regulations



How do I recycle my old products?

·         It means that you can return waste electrical equipment to AV Parts Master when you are purchasing a new product from us under our distributer obligations*

·         When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled

·         Please carefully package any item for recycling  to avoid transit damage

·         We will then deal with the waste product in an environmentally responsible manner, at no cost to you.


*It has to be like for like (e.g. a laptop for a laptop, not a TV for a laptop).

The RoHS Directive
