WEE & Battery Statement Policy

The Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) Regulations 2005 and Battery Regulations 2008 implement EU Directives which aim to reduce the Waste that arises from the production of   Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and Batteries.  One of the principal features of the WEEE and Battery Regulations is that Retailers are obliged to accept returns of WEEE and Batteries from private households free of charge.

Local Authority civic amenity facilities also take back WEEE and waste batteries free of charge. WEEE and waste battery recycling is free.

  1. Free Product Take Back

 

2.1 When you purchase electrical or electronic equipment (EEE) from us, you can return your Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) free of charge on a one-for-one like-for-like basis other than contaminated WEEE that presents a health and safety risk.  You can also take any WEEE to your local authority’s recycling centre or civic amenity site at any time free of charge.

For example, if you purchase a microwave from us, you can return your old microwave to us free of charge.  However, you cannot return a washing machine                        when you purchase a microwave and will instead be required to return the washing machine to your local civic amenity site, which is also free of charge. 

 

2.2  We can arrange for the collection of your WEEE items on the same day that we deliver your new product provided that we are given at least 24 hours’ notice of              your intention to return suitable WEEE. Where such equipment is not available for immediate return we can arrange for the collection within 15 days of the date of delivery of your new product purchase provided that your WEEE is disconnected from utilities and permanent structures, and does not pose a health and safety risk.  In addition, you can bring back your WEEE within a maximum of 30 days from the date of delivery to our centre at KAL (Kitchen Accessories Limited), 4078 Kingswood Road, Citywest Business Park, Dublin 24. Please ensure you bring your receipt as proof of your purchase.   You can also take your WEEE to your local civic amenity site at any time free of charge.

 

 

2.3 What is EEE?  If your Electrical or Electronic Equipment contains the following symbol, then you can recycle it free of charge with either your local civil amenity site or with us for the reasons outlined above.

  1. Price Notice Displays & Contribution to Producer Recycling Fund (PRF)

 

3.1 Some electrical goods indicate a Producer Recycling Fund (PRF) contribution on their price display.  This indicates the environmental management cost for  recycling historic WEEE from private households placed on the market prior to 13 August 2005.  When we distribute EEE supplied by a producer who displays                         environmental management costs which are known as “Producer Recycling Fund (PRF)” contributions we will indicate this on the price notice display in a three- point-pricing format.  For example:
Retail Price €749.99, Producer Recycling Fund (PRF) €20.00, Price excluding PRF €729.99

 

3.2 If the PRF contribution is already included, our invoice, receipt and/or delivery docket will state that the price of the EEE item includes the Producer Recycling Fund contribution.  The WEEE Register Society Ltd., the National Registration Body for producers, has approved the PRF contributions per category and                                  subcategory of EEE. For information on those categories and their corresponding costs, please visit www.weeeregister.ie.
