The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers of electrical and electronic equipment 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.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
DetailedClean.co.uk is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free takeback of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
If you have bought or will be buying a new machine polisher from us, we will take-back your old machine polisher and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us (at their own cost if using a carrier) within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
