WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2010)
Several of our products (keyboards, mice, lighting, etc.) are electrical. If you are buying a new electrical item for domestic use*, we are pleased to recycle your old one for free. To do so, simply return the old item(s) within 28 days of purchasing your new product(s) to:
Osmond Group Limited, 21 Johnson Road, Ferndown Industrial Estate, Wimborne BH21 7SE, UK. You will need to pay for the return carriage but we promise to commit the product(s) to our programme of salvaging and recycling as much as possible.
In respect of products sold to Corporate bodies, under the WEEE Regulations, Osmond Group Limited passes on the obligation for responsible disposal of non- domestic products to the customer.
Please do not throw away electrical equipment (including those items marked with the “crossed wheelie bin” symbol). This is important because:
• Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.
• Many electrical items can be repaired, recycled or reused, saving natural resources and the environment.
• If we do not recycle electrical items, they will end up in landfill where hazardous substances may leak out and cause soil and water contamination, potentially harming wildlife and human health.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally-friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed upon us by offering all domestic customers a free recycling service for their old electricals on a like-for-like basis when buying new electrical equipment.
* domestic use means for your own personal use rather than in your work. If the purchase is by your company or the organisation that employs you, then they have specific obligations under the WEEE Regulations and disposal/recycling is their responsibility. We shall be pleased to offer guidance if your employer needs assistance in understanding and complying with the Regulations but an internet search using “waste management services” is the best place to start.
