9) WEEE Regulations:
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive
is now UK law. The legislation 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.
Much of the UKÂ’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and
other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful
effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired
or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also
reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE)
have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
VMS UK LTD TA 4AIR.CO.UK is obliged under these regulations
to offer our private household customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like
basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
For example, if a private household customer bought a new
dehumidifier from us we would accept their old dehumidifier and prevent it going into
a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Private household customers must return their
WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods
should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol, all the electrical
products we supply are WEEE compliant and they have the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol.
Please fill the attached form in order to return the goods:
You will need to attach the WEEE Take back number that will be sent via Email back to us when returning the goods.
All sales are subject
to 4air.co.uk Trading Terms and Conditions
as described above.
