Information on the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive)
All Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) placed onto the market from January 2, 2007 must be marked with this symbol to indicate that it is covered by the WEEE Directive, the provisions of which require that producers or manufacturers of EEE become liable to pay for take-back treatment and recycling of end of life equipment (WEEE):

  • What are Video Game Box's obligations according to the WEEE Directive?
In line with WEEE Waste Electrical and Equipment Regulation, Video Game Box offers a like-for-like take back recycling scheme. This means that if you are replacing an electrical item with a new electrical item from Video Game Box, you may send the old item to us for recycling.
  • How does ensure safe disposal of my WEEE?
  • Please post any items within 28 days of purchase to the address on your invoice. Unfortunately we are unable to cover the cost of the postage of your old item.

  • Are there any other ways of disposing of my old electronic equipment?
If your old piece of electronic equipment is still in a good working condition or could be repaired for further use, please consider donating it to a charitable organisation or by giving it to someone else in need. By extending the lifetime of your old equipment you are also contributing to the efficient use of resources and avoiding additional waste.

Please note that from July 1, 2007, it will be possible for you to dispose of your WEEE and ensure that it is recycled. WEEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, may have a serious detrimental effect on the environment and human health. That is why all WEEE that you volunteer for recycling will be specifically collected and treated by designated local waste facility centres and by licensed WEEE compliance schemes. By ensuring that you dispose off your old electrical and electronic equipment according to the new WEEE legislation you are helping to preserve our natural resources and protect human health.

  • What is the WEEE Directive?

The production of electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest growing domains of manufacturing in the western world, and with broad consumer take-up of products in this area, there is also a mounting issue of waste. In June 2000, the European Commission put forward proposals to address this issue, and in December 2002 these were passed as the EU Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive.

For the UK, the WEEE Regulations were laid before Parliament on December 12, 2006. The main requirements and obligations on producers and distributors of Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) came into effect from July 1, 2007.

The major provisions of the WEEE Directive are:
  • Which products fall under the legislation and how do I recognise them?

    • Category 1 - Large household appliances (fridges, cookers, microwaves, washing machines, etc.)
    • Category 2 - Small household appliances (vacuum cleaners, clocks, toasters, etc.)
    • Category 3 - IT and Telecommunications equipment (PCs, mainframes, printers, copiers, phones, etc.)
    • Category 4 - Consumer equipment (radios, hi-fi, musical instruments, videos, camcorders, etc.)
    • Category 5 - Lighting equipment (fluorescent tubes and holders, sodium lamps, etc.)
    • Category 6 - Electrical and electronic tools (drills, sewing machines, electric lawnmowers, etc.)
    • Category 7 - Toys, leisure and sports equipment (electric trains, games consoles, exercise machines, etc.)
    • Category 8 - Medical devices (analysers, dialysis machines, medical freezers, etc.)
    • Category 9 - Monitoring and control equipment (smoke detectors, thermostats, scales, etc.)
    • Category 10 - Automatic dispensers (hot drinks machines, sweet and chocolate bar dispensers, cash machines, etc.)
