WeeeCare – EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

The EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires all Member EU countries to maximise the separate collection, reuse and recycling of WEEE. The UK WEEE Regulations apply to all Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) placed on the market in the UK covered by the scope of these Regulations. Under the UK WEEE Regulations, producers are required to mark all relevant EEE with a “crossed-out wheelie bin” symbol to remind consumers not to discard WEEE in the domestic waste stream. Dantex encourages all of its customers to make note of this symbol and avoid putting any WEEE in your domestic waste bin(s) or container(s).

Environmental benefits of Weee

Dantex supports the reuse and recycling of WEEE as there are several environmental benefits of doing so, such as: Reduction of raw material and energy usage, prevention of landfill, prevention of hazardous and/or toxic materials present in some WEEE contaminating the environment. As a Producer under the UK WEEE Regulations, Dantex complies with its Producer Obligations by being registered as a Member of the WeeeCare Compliance Scheme and obtaining the WEEE Producer Registration Number – WEEE/AF0003ZR


Under the UK WEEE Regulations, Distributors are required to provide a “take-back” system which allows customers (end users) the opportunity to return (or “take-back”) their WEEE to a Distributor free of charge, when supplying new EEE on a like-for-like basis. As a B2B Producer/Distributor under the UK WEEE Regulations, Dantex allows for end users of the EEE placed on the market in the UK to return WEEE back to us free of charge on a like-for-like basis for new EEE purchased.
