Machine Mart and the WEEE Regulations

What are WEEE regulations?

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE regulations are there to regulate the disposal of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

Information for consumers in the UK

WEEE Logo

Look out for this symbol!...

If the symbol shown here is found on any of your goods, it means that the product may be classed as Electrical or Electronic Equipment and is covered by the WEEE Regulations which came into force in the UK in 2007.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE) have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection.

When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled. Machine Mart has joined the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS) and will make a financial contribution to the DTS which will be used to assist in the development of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection facilities throughout the UK .

To ensure that your WEEE is recycled in accordance with the regulations, you must ensure that the goods are not put in the bin, but are separately disposed of by taking the WEEE to your local designated collection facility. This would normally be your local civic amenity site (recycling centre). To locate your local site, contact your authority

or go directly to the listing of approved sites where you'll see they are arranged by county

As Machine Mart have joined the DTS, we will not be obligated to take back any waste electrical or electronic equipment.  Our store network will have information on the nearest recycling facility.
