WEEE TAKE BACK
EU Directive 2002/96/EC became law in the UK on 2nd January, 2007. It was introduced to prevent Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) disposal to incineration or landfill and promote re-use, recycling and recovery. All electrical and electronic waste must be stored, collected, treated, recycled and disposed of separately from other waste.
As a producer of non-household electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), and in order to fulfil our WEEE obligations, APS has registered with a UK WEEE Producer Compliance Scheme (DHL Enviro Solutions).
DISPOSAL in the UK
All products that are subject to the WEEE Directive supplied by APS are compliant with the WEEE marketing requirements. Such products are labelled with the “crossed out wheelie bin” WEEE symbol shown right in accordance with European Standard EN50419.
This symbol on the product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of within normal household waste. Instead, it is your responsibility to dispose of your waste equipment by arranging to return it to a designated collection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. By separating and recycling your waste equipment at the time of disposal you will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that the equipment is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment.
For more information about how to recycle your APS supplied waste equipment, please contact our offices on +44 (0)1786 479862 or email us.
