What is WEEE?
To help protect the environment, government initiated and implemented a new set of rules and regulations about how to deal with waste in the UK. The new directive called “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” or “WEEE” states that as a retailer we are responsible for increasing the amount of WEEE that is recycled in the UK by assisting in the development of dedicated collection & recycling facilities. This new directive came into effect on 1st July 2007.
mychoice encourage all customers to take advantage of the recycling options available. The nominal charge of £19.99 is for the cost of collection. As part of it’s support for the government initiative, mychoice do not charge for disposal and recycling. All products are disposed of through a nominated WEEE recycling facility.
