From now on all new electrical products that can be recycled will carry this ‘crossed out wheelie bin’ symbol to help you remember to recycle them.
From 1st July 2007, the UK’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations will allow members of the public to deposit old electrical and electronic items at recycling sites across the UK.
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the UK and putting EEE into the usual waste system can be detrimental to public health and the environment. Much of this waste can be recycled which prevents it going to landfill causing hazardous waste.
As a retailer that sells selected electrical items, PhoticMedia fully supports this regulation and encourages all customers to play a part in protecting our environment for future generations; therefore we are asking all customers to take any EEE waste to their local recycling site.
Please contact us for information on your nearest WEEE centre. Otherwise you may contact your local council, or click here and type your postcode into the recycling bank locator.
