E-Lites - WEEE Compliance & Regulations
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations are now UK law. All European member states have agreed to proposals to reduce the amount of WEEE deposited in landfill sites. All manufacturers, retailers and distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment need to take an active role in reducing the levels of WEEE disposed of in landfill sites.
WEEE reduction in landfill sites is important as it can contain hazardous substances which can contaminate water supplies and pollute soil, which may then result in damage to human health and the environment.
Some WEEE can also be recycled. The amount of available landfill space is decreasing throughout Europe and in the UK, so by keeping recyclable, or re-usable WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.
E-Lites WEEE Return Policy
Electronic cigarette companies need to play their role and E-Lites are at the forefront in implementing the WEEE regulations. We are as passionate about minimising our impact on the environment, as we are on helping our customers improve their health, therefore we offer a ‘WEEE Return Policy’ service for all WEEE regulated products. This means that if you purchase a new e-tip cartridge, battery or charger from E-Lites.co.uk we will ‘take-back’ the old e-tip, battery or charger to ensure the products are disposed of safely and not in landfill sites.
If you would like to return your WEEE regulated products to E-Lites for safe disposal then please post to:
E-Lites WEEE Returns, 18 Buntsford Hill Business Park, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. B60 3DX.
Please Note: Customers are required to pay the postage cost for returns.
If you did not purchase online, you can also return your old WEEE items to the local store at which you purchased them. For further information please feel free to email us on email@example.com, or call 0800 1123401
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol as shown on our packaging. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
