WEEE Compliance

WEEE Compliance

Recycling of Old Electrical Equipment UK WEEE Directive

Note this applies to Caterdeal UK customers only.

On the 2nd January 2007 the UK Government enacted legislation in line with the European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. As a result, from July 2007 all electrical products are required to be recycled at the end of their useful life. This regulation outlines rules for the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of electrical waste.

As a producer and importer for the business to business market, Caterdeal feel the best way to achieve compliance is to offer a collection and responsible disposal service which is charged as and when required, at the end of the product life.

By charging at 'end of life' we are confident that this will ensure our charges are a fair reflection of the true costs incurred. It is not our intention to view this as a profit making exercise.

Historic And Current WEEE

Caterdeal have decided to adopt a universal policy for both Historic WEEE (items purchased before April 2005) and Current WEEE (purchased after April 2005). This means that, in addition to the collection and disposal of our obligatory compliance products, if you wish to order a replacement for an old unit (irrespective of brand or when it was purchased, and for the charge outlined) Caterdeal are able to collect the old unit at the time of delivering the replacement on many of our units. To arrange this, please contact us on 0333 222 5966 or sales@caterdeal.co.uk

Please note that if our collection and disposal service is required, all old units have to be unplugged or disconnected, empty and ready for collection.
