WEEE Regulations

  • The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
  • The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
  • PC Ink is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
  • Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. The postage or delivery cost of the return is payable by the customer.
  • Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
  • To recycle locally, please contact your local authority for details of your local recycling facilities.

Battery Regulations

  • The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations: Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person (please do not post). Please contact us for our business premises address.
  • Alternatively, you can find your local recycling facility at either www.recyclenow.co.uk or www.recycle-more.co.uk.
