WEEE Compliancy

The WEEE regulations

Implemented in 2007, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations set about increasing the reuse and recycling of waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) by reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill. The regulations aim to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover EEE.

As a Producer, it is our responsibility to finance the end-of-life treatment of our products.

We are proud to be a member of the UK’s leading lighting compliance scheme, Recolight, which manages this on our behalf.
