WEEE Compliance

Collection and Recycling Arrangements in the United Kingdom

Under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive and implementing regulations, when customers buy new electrical and electronic equipment from Elo Touch Solutions they are entitled to:

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 Elo Touch Solutions equipment, Elo Touch Solutions is required to provide arrangements for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of the old equipment. The old equipment that your new purchase from Elo Touch Solutions replaces is referred to as Historic WEEE.

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

Elo Touch Solutions products are very competitively priced. Any new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as Elo Touch Solutions is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, Elo Touch Solutions 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:

  • Elo Touch Solutions pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets set by the WEEE Regulations;
  • Elo Touch Solutions 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 Elo Touch Solutions’ appointed recycler in the UK.

Elo Touch Solutions 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 Elo Touch Solutions 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 licence):
