WEEE Returns

1st July 2007 saw the introduction of the WEEE Regulations 2006 which will have a major impact on the way we deal with end of life electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the UK.

From that date the producer (manufacturer or importer) of the equipment has a duty to collect, treat and recycle products which they have put on the market.

This means that our business customers will be able to dispose of qualifying equipment in an environmentally friendly way free of charge.

The rules concerning what can and cannot be collected, who will pay for it, who will collect it, and where it will be disposed of are complex, so we have decided to make things as simple as possible for our customers, by setting out the following rules:

  • If your Metrodata equipment IS NOT marked with a crossed out wheelie bin with a bar underneath then it is the responsibility of the user to dispose of this equipment in an environmentally friendly way.
  • If your Metrodata equipment IS marked with a crossed out wheelie bin with a bar underneath then it is the responsibility of the producer who manufactured or imported it. To arrange free collection of any of this waste electrical equipment which is obligated to Metrodata, then please email us with the details as required below, and Metrodata will arrange free of charge collection and disposal.

With regard to WEEE recycling email info@metrodata.co.uk with customer name and address, product names, quantities, serial numbers, and approximate total weights.
