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 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 Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
SafariQuip Ltd 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.
For example if a customer bought a travel kettle from us we would accept their old kettle and prevent it going to a landfill site and disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Customers do not have to pay for the transportation of their WEEE to our premises.
If you wish to return your WEEE item, please contact us by phone or e-mail, details are below:

Under WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out bin symbol.
