Airflow Developments WEEE Policy
Airflow Developments Ltd offers free take-back of like-for-like waste electrical and electronic equipment under the WEEE Directive:
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of electrical equipment like us, must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
Airflow Developments Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. Take-back is offered subject to:
- We can only take-back like-for-like items e.g. extractor for a new extractor.
- Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
- Customers wishing to return a WEEE can either drop it off at our premises or send it back to:
- Airflow Developments LTD, Lancaster Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP123QP
