Compliance with UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations

Our WEEE obligation for products sold into the industrial and commercial market (also known as Business to Business WEEE or B2B WEEE) entails registering with a compliance scheme, and therefore providing an end-of-life recycling solution for this stream.

As commercial and industrial products are sold into the UK market to end-users via our network of distributors this usually means that our products move beyond our reach for economically providing collection and recycling. Furthermore, we consider it inappropriate to cover the cost of recycling by adding this to the purchase price of products. We believe that it is simpler and fairer for the actual costs to be met by end users when products actually reach their end-of-life.

In order to support this drive for recycling we have agreed with Valpak Ltd for them to provide such a collection and recycling service for our customers. Our customers, and those of our distributors, can contact Valpak Ltd direct to arrange for the service, and will make payment for the service direct to Valpak Ltd.
