The WEEE regulations

Implemented in 2007, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations are intended to increase the reuse and recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) by reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill.

As a Producer, it is our responsibility to finance the end-of-life treatment of our products.

We are proud to be a member of Recolight, which manages this on our behalf.
