On the 2nd January 2007 the UK Government enacted legislation in line with the European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. The purpose of this Directive is to ensure the safe collection, recovery, treatment and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment across Europe at the end of their product life, to prevent volume electrical waste at landfills.
As an importer for the business-to-business (b2b) market, Astroluxe Limited (T/A Zodiac Stainless Products Company) are fully committed to achieving WEEE compliance by offering a free ‘take-back’ service on all electrical items purchased from ourselves.
Our UK registration number: WEE/CF0233YU/PRO
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take-back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
