The WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) regulations came into force in 2007. Its aim is to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) ending up in landfill sites. This legislation makes 'producers' of EEE responsible for the environmental impact of their products, by financing the collection and subsequent treatment, reuse, recovery, recycling and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE for which they have an obligation. JPR Electronics will comply with these regulations in the most environmentally sound way by working in partnership with WeeeCare, operators of one of the UK's leading WEEE compliance schemes. All products covered by the legislation which were manufactured and placed for sale after 1st January 2007 must be labelled with the "crossed out wheelie bin" symbol. Customers who are replacing old equipment that is of equivalent type and function to a new product they are purchasing from JPR can return their WEEE to JPR for safe disposal and recycling.
Disposing of WEEE: To begin the process of disposing of your WEEE please contact the WeeeCare Help line on 0844 800 2004, quoting JPR membership number WEEE/DC0554ZV
