RECYCLING YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES

 

You can recycle your electrical and electronic devices free of charge. Search for your nearest recycling centre at recyclenow.com

 

UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all producers of electrical equipment actively assist in delivery of a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment.

 

To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out bin symbol. Please note that products bearing this symbol should not be disposed of as municipal waste and need to be kept separate from other waste to avoid potential harmful effects on the environment and human health as the result of harmful substances in WEEE.

 

Typo has joined the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS). The DTS is a Government initiative designed to minimise the disposal of WEEE to landfill and to achieve high levels of collection of WEEE for environmentally sound disposal.

 

By joining the scheme Typo is contributing to the establishment of a network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCF) where consumers may dispose of their WEEE free of charge for recycling and treatment in an ecologically sound manner. .

 

Because of our membership of the DTS scheme - Typo will not accept returns of household WEEE instore and cannot accept WEEE returns for recycling, neither will we make arrangements for its collection.
