Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Batteries
WEEE (Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment) disposed of to landfill, incinerated or recovered without any pre-treatment has potentially serious consequences for the environment and human health. You will find a crossed out wheeled bin symbol on the base of the product. The symbol means that the equipment should not be disposed of with general household waste.
There is no disposal charge for end of life EEE returned to Meteor stores or deposited at civic amenity sites. Meteor will accept old product on a one for one basis (must be equivalent type and have fulfilled the same function). There is no environmental management charge applied to mobile phones and accessories as Meteor have absorbed these recycling costs.
Waste batteries must never be placed in your waste disposal or recycling bins. There is a bin for small batteries in your local store. Battery recycling is free.
Play your part by:
- Not disposing of WEEE or batteries with your general household waste
- Bringing these waste products to your local civil amenity site at end of life for recycling.
- You can bring or post your old mobile phones or batteries to any Meteor store. You can identify a Meteor store in your area by clicking on this link.
