Recycling

SinceJuly 2007 the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations have applied. The regulations were introduced to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill, and to ensure that equipment collected separately is dealt with properly.

All new electrical and electronic equipment we sell at Wahl (UK) Ltd can be recycled. You can tell because our products include a ‘crossed out wheeled bin symbol’ like this.

Even if your old product doesn’t have the ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol, the good news is we’ll gladly accept and recycle your old electrical and electronic equipment to the best of our ability

Benefits of recycling

Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Leadand other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.

Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled.Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
