Collection and Recycling Arrangements in the United Kingdom

Under the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations, for old equipment that you have bought before August 2005 which is being replaced on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis by the purchase of new Source Technologies equipment, Source Technologies is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the old equipment. The old equipment that your new purchase from Source Technologies replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

Under the UK WEEE Regulations, Source Technologies is also required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of any new electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Source Technologies after August 2005, when that new equipment eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as New WEEE.

  • Source Technologies is required to provide these arrangements starting from 1 July 2007.
  • Source Technologies’ products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Source Technologies is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Source Technologies has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers. We believe in being transparent with you on any new environmental costs that our products need to address.

Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:

Source Technologies pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Regulations;

Source Technologies pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Environment Agency to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Regulations; you pay for transportation of your WEEE to Source Technologies’ appointed recycler in the UK.

Source Technologies has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN) and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the equipment on arrival at the EARN recycling facility in the UK. All New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Source Technologies products is classed as non-hazardous waste.

It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection and transportation to the recycler. In order to meet UK Duty of Care Regulations for waste disposal, you should use one of the following carriers (which hold a valid Waste Carriers license):

Waste Carrier Telephone Number Website
TNT UK Ltd +44 (0) 800 100600

www.tnt.co.uk

DHL International (UK) Ltd +44 (0) 8701 100300

www.dhl.co.uk

Christian Salvesen PLC +44 (0) 870 3655714

For larger quantities of waste, you may want to contact the recycler directly to arrange and pay for alternative collection methods. The EARN recycling facility in the United Kingdom is:

Recycler Telephone Number Website
MDJ Light Bros Ltd +44 (0) 1273 476862 www.wastrec.com

 

To comply with the UK Duty of Care Regulations the transport of your waste to the recycler must be accompanied by suitable documentation. You must also keep a signed copy of this documentation for two years.

In order to meet this requirement and to enable EARN to identify Source Technologies equipment upon arrival at the recycler's address, please download the Recycling Label for British Customers. Complete the label with your company details and attach it to a suitable box for transport to EARN: Recycling Label for British Customers.
