What is WEEE?

Recycling at Djbox

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. It refers to any electrical or electronic equipment that has reached the end of its useful life and is therefore classified as waste. This includes household appliances, computers, mobile phones, televisions, and other electronic devices. WEEE poses a significant environmental challenge as electronic waste can contain hazardous substances such as lead, mercury, and cadmium that can cause harm to the environment and human health. These substances can pollute soil, water, and air, leading to serious health consequences for humans and wildlife. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure proper management and recycling of WEEE to minimize the environmental impact and reduce the risks associated with hazardous substances. In response to the growing concern over electronic waste, governments and organizations across the world have implemented policies and regulations to manage the disposal and recycling of electronic waste.

Faize Sound and Lighting Ltd. is committed to meeting the requirements of the European Union (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations 2014. These Regulations require producers of electrical and electronic equipment to finance the takeback of WEEE resulting from products that we place on the Irish market. This helps us to ensure that WEEE is reused or recycled safely. In line with that commitment Faize Sound and Lighting Ltd. will take back WEEE from you. Please contact us for details.

You also have a role to play in ensuring that WEEE is reused and recycled safely. So, if you choose not to return WEEE to us then you should not dispose of it in your bin. The crossed out wheeled-bin symbol on the product reminds users not to dispose WEEE in the bin. You should ensure that the WEEE is collected separately and sent for proper treatment. WEEE contains hazardous substances and if not managed and treated safely it can cause pollution and damage human health.
