WEEE Statement & The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations

WEEE Statement

Please help us to minimise the effect we have on the environment by recycling your waste electrical goods. Much of the UKs electronic waste ends up in landfill sites, where toxins put communities at risk. To find out more about recycling electrical waste, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all producers of electrical equipment are now obliged to pay for these items to be recycled when they become waste. These regulations also require that all retailers both actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment.

In order to partially meet our obligations as a distributor as defined in the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (SI 2006 No. 3289 - 11 December 2006), Foneshop.com have opted to become a full member of the Distributor Take back Scheme (DTS) as defined in regulation 35 of the WEEE Regulations.

As a member of the DTS, we have made a financial contribution toward the development of the network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) for WEEE instead of collecting waste items instore. To locate your local WEEE collection site, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk or contact our customer services department.

The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations

In 2009, new regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were introduced. The Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from the current rate of about 3% to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

To comply with these guidelines, we are able to offer you, the customer, a free recycling facility for your unwanted mobile phone batteries.

If you have a used, damaged or unwanted mobile phone battery and wish to recycle it free of charge, please return all batteries in person to: Unit 4, Springfield Lyons House Chelmsford Business Park Chelmsford Essex. CM2 5TH. NB: IN LINE WITH WEEE REGULATIONS, PLEASE DO NOT POST Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.com Many supermarkets also have collection bins for used batteries.
