Weee Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (2006 No. 3289) (WEEE) is a new UK legislation designed to address the environmental impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment.

The regulations have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection.

Both Offtek and our customers can assist in recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment. We cannot recycle it unless you return it, so our customers have an important role to play in helping us to recycle.

Offtek will undertake their responsibility as a distributor to dispose of these goods in line with European legislation.

How do I know if my product is covered?

Look out for this symbol 


If the symbol shown here is found on any of your goods, it means that the product is covered by the WEEE Regulations.

How do I recycle my old products?

It means that you can return waste electrical equipment to OFFTEK when you are purchasing a new product from us. Please note that it has to be like for like product. When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not place in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled. Please contact us at support@offtek.co.uk and we will issue a returns number and a freepost label. We will then deal with the waste product in an environmentally responsible manner, at no cost to you.
