WEEE Electrical Recycling

Electrical products

This legislation (the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations ensures that waste electrical and electronic is collected and recycled in an environmentally responsible manner. The price you pay at the till for these products in-store may include a contribution to a producer recycling fund (PRF) which helps to fund the cost of the collection and recycling of waste electrical equipment. The contributions to the producer recycling fund which are published in our catalogue are correct at the time of going to press. These contributions are set by an independent body, known as the 'WEEE Producer Register Limited'. If the WEEE Producer Register Limited makes changes to the contributions after the catalogue has been published we will let you know in-store.
