13. WEEE Directive
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers 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.
Gardens and Homes Direct will offer a WEEE take back scheme of old WEEE items on a like for like basis where an equivalent item has been purchased. Items will only be taken back if the purchase item fulfils the same function as the item to be returned and is of similar size. A charge will be applied to cover any transport costs to collect the item from the end consumer. Alternatively the item can be returned to, Gardens & Homes Direct, Oliver's Place, Fulwood, Preston, PR2 9WT at the consumers own cost provided this is pre-arranged at the time of purchase.
What is WEEE?
New government regulations called The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations encourages people to arrange collection or recycling of old electrical products, rather than throwing them away.
Why should waste electrical goods be recycled?
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. The amount of electrical waste, from hairdryers to washing machines, that is thrown away is increasing by around 5% each year. This means that in one year the amount of electrical waste created in the UK could fill Wembley Stadium 6 times! Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
When you buy from us we'll recycle your old product for free. Together we can make a difference to the environment. Buy any product from us and we'll recycle your old one for free.
How do I know if the item falls under this scheme?
We will inform you at the time of purchase whether the item falls under the free recycling scheme. In addition electrical items are now identified with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol to show they should not be thrown away but returned to the retailer for recycling.
14. Environmental Statement
We appreciate our customers concerns about sourcing wood and timber from sustainable plantations. All of our wooden products have a full chain of custody certificate and are made from renewable sources.
So, you can have peace of mind that your purchase does not impact the environment.
