Recycling unwanted electrical products is good for the environment. UK households dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical waste every year; this is enough to fill Wembley Stadium 6 times over!
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulations came into force on 1st July 2007. The aim is to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment ending up in landfill. Instead the regulations require the collection, treatment, recycling and sound disposal of WEEE.
The way to find out if an electrical product can be recycled is to look for the crossed out wheelie bin sign on the product, the instructions or the packaging.
If your product has the wheelie bin sign it means that, when the product has reached the end of its useful life, it should not be thrown away with household waste but taken to a recycle facility. Check with your Local Authority for details.
