The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or WEEE) Regulations are now U.K. law. All European member States including the U.K. have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites. It is important that the amount of WEEE sent to landfill sites is reduced because:
• Some WEEE can be re-used or recycled. The amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.
• WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
Cyberpower are "doing our bit" under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product.
If you bought a new Computer from CyberPower, we would accept your old Computer, monitor or external components on a "like for like basis" and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. You must return your WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing your new item. You do not have to pay for the transportation of the WEEE items to our premises. If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us on 03333-237776.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with
the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005,
and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
