Information on the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive)
A. All Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) placed onto the market from January 2, 2007 must be marked with this symbol to indicate that it is covered by the WEEE Directive, the provisions of which require that producers or manufacturers of EEE become liable to pay for take-back treatment and recycling of end of life equipment (WEEE):
  • What are Dapper Street's obligations according to the WEEE Directive?
    As a distributor of EEE Dapper Street, must facilitate the take-back of household WEEE from UK consumers and has decided to fulfil its obligations in this area by joining the Government approved "Distributor Take-Back scheme" (DTS) set up by Valpak. By joining the Valpak scheme Dapper Street is contributing to the establishment of a network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCF) where consumers may dispose of their WEEE free of charge for recycling and treatment in an ecologically sound manner. In this way Dapper Street can ensure that WEEE is disposed of by customers in a way that optimizes its re-use and recycling. The recycling and treatment of WEEE itself is part of the producer's obligation under the WEEE Directive. As a consequence of our membership of the Valpak scheme Dapper Street will not accept returns of household WEEE itself and cannot accept WEEE returns for recycling, neither do we make arrangements for its collection.
  • How does Dapper Street ensure safe disposal of my WEEE?
    Dapper Street has decided to join the Distributor Take-Back scheme (DTS) commissioned by the British Retail Consortium. This scheme is run by Valpak who are officially approved by the Government. As part of this scheme we ask that you take your old piece of equipment to a designated collection facility (DCF) run by Valpak in your area. An online search facility to help you identify a DCF near you is available on the following website:
  • Are there any other ways of disposing of my old electronic equipment?
    If your old piece of electronic equipment is still in a good working condition or could be repaired for further use, please consider donating it to a charitable organisation or by giving it to someone else in need. By extending the lifetime of your old equipment you are also contributing to the efficient use of resources and avoiding additional waste.
  • Please note that from July 1, 2007, it will be possible for you to dispose of your WEEE and ensure that it is recycled. EEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, may have a serious detrimental effect on the environment and human health. That is why all WEEE that you volunteer for recycling will be specifically collected and treated by designated local waste facility centres and by licensed WEEE compliance schemes. By ensuring that you dispose off your old electrical and electronic equipment according to the new WEEE legislation you are helping to preserve our natural resources and protect human health.
  • What is the WEEE Directive?
    The production of electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest growing domains of manufacturing in the western world, and with broad consumer take-up of products in this area, there is also a mounting issue of waste. In June 2000, the European Commission put forward proposals to address this issue, and in December 2002 these were passed as the EU Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive.

    For the UK, the WEEE Regulations were laid before Parliament on December 12, 2006. The main requirements and obligations on producers and distributors of Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) came into effect from July 1, 2007.

    The major provisions of the WEEE Directive are:
    • All manufacturers (or anyone else selling a product on the market in the EU) are liable to pay for take-back, treatment and recycling of end-of-life equipment.
    • Improve re-use/recycling of WEEE.
    • Ensure the separate collection of WEEE.
    • Inform the public about their role in dealing with WEEE.
  • Which products fall under the legislation and how do I recognise them?
    The WEEE Directive divides Electronic and Electrical Equipment into ten categories:
    • Category 1 - Large household appliances (fridges, cookers, microwaves, washing machines, etc.)
    • Category 2 - Small household appliances (vacuum cleaners, clocks, toasters, etc.)
    • Category 3 - IT and Telecommunications equipment (PCs, mainframes, printers, copiers, phones, etc.)
    • Category 4 - Consumer equipment (radios, hi-fi, musical instruments, videos, camcorders, etc.)
    • Category 5 - Lighting equipment (fluorescent tubes and holders, sodium lamps, etc.)
    • Category 6 - Electrical and electronic tools (drills, sewing machines, electric lawnmowers, etc.)
    • Category 7 - Toys, leisure and sports equipment (electric trains, games consoles, exercise machines, etc.)
    • Category 8 - Medical devices (analysers, dialysis machines, medical freezers, etc.)
    • Category 9 - Monitoring and control equipment (smoke detectors, thermostats, scales, etc.)
    • Category 10 - Automatic dispensers (hot drinks machines, sweet and chocolate bar dispensers, cash machines, etc.)
How can I recycle my old batteries
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. We will accept the return of your waste batteries at our head office, or, alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at http://www.recyclenow.com. Most Supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, schools or libraries may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.

Please do not return your used batteries to us via mail.
