WEEE Policy

WEEE Regulations & What is WEEE

What is WEEE?

WEEE is end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment and includes virtually everything with a plug, battery, or lamp. WEEE items will have the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol marked on them. 


Why Recycle your WEEE? 

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle your WEEE, it could end up in landfill where hazardous substances may leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and human health.


Regulations 2019 

In the UK, distributors including retailers are required to provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical items the opportunity to recycle their old electrical items free of charge. As a responsible distributor, we have met these requirements by offering 

our customers buying new Vaporisers free take-back of their old Vaporisers on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. 


You can also confirm the location of your nearest Civic Amenity electrical waste 

recycling site at www.recycleyourelectricals.org.uk. 



We can help! 

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their end-of-life vaporiser when purchasing a new Vaporiser from us. Please contact us at: enquiries@newgrovepharmacy.com to arrange.
