This page is to guide you about our WEEE scheme. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment, by increasing re-use and recycling and reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol as shown above. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin. EC Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive was agreed on 13 February 2003, along with the related Directive on Restrictions of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS). 1. What are KJ GLOBAL's obligations according to the WEEE Directive? As a distributor of WEEE, we must facilitate the take-back of household WEEE from UK consumers and has decided to fulfill its obligations in this area by offering free in store take back. Distributors supplying new electrical or electrical equipment (EEE) have to ensure that waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) from private households can be returned to them free of charge on a one-to-one basis providing that the WEEE returned is of equivalent type to and has fulfilled the same function as the new EEE purchased. For example, an old media player can be returned to us when purchasing a new media Player regardless of the brand and where the old one was originally purchased.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination harming wildlife and also human health. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

We will then include a bag with your order, allowing you to return the WEEE product to us at a time convenient to yourself.3. Are there any other ways of disposing of my old electronic equipment? Old electronic equipment that still works can be given to charities or why not try ebaying it and earn a bit of money for yourself? Either of these suggested methods will prolong the life of the electronic equipment and reduce their impact on the environment.
