All SimplyLED products comply with the UK WEEE directive 2007.
The Waste, Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive was inducted into United Kingdom law in January 2007 with the aim of improving the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electrical / electronic equipment.
In the UK we throw away 1.2 million tones of WEEE annually. It is estimated that over 75% of this ends up in landfill sites. Unless we address this quickly, the build up of WEEE material in landfills will have devastating consequences for our natural environment, wildlife and humanity.
In compliance with WEEE regulations all SimplyLED products are marked with a ‘crossed out wheelie bin’ logo. Products displaying this symbol were produced after 13th August 2005 and must be disposed of separately from standard household waste.
SimplyLED are committed to providing a responsible recycling service to our customers who wish to send us their WEEE items. To be eligible for this free service simply purchase a like-for-like product from us and return* your WEEE item to the address below within 28 days of making your purchase – we’ll do the rest.
