WEEE Policy

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Registration number: WEE/KD1975RT

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) is an EU initiative to protect the environment by reducing the amount of electrical equipment and products going into landfill sites.

DART Tool Group are committed to the protection of the environment and therefore the successful implementation of the WEEE regulations.

If this symbol is shown on any of your goods, it means that the product is classed as Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and should not be disposed of with your general waste.

Where the WEEE does not bear the crossed out wheelie bin symbol, users are required to meet the costs of collection, treatment and disposal themselves. There is no financial obligation on either ourselves at DART Tool Group or our distributors in respect of this.

A charge may be made where WEEE of our supply bearing the crossed out wheelie bin symbol is being returned to DART Tool Group.

If you are a business customer of DART Tool Group who sells on to private customers you will have the obligation, as a distributor, under the B2C side of the regulations to arrange the movement of WEEE returned to you, to recycling centres.

If you are a business customer of DART Tool Group who only sells on to other businesses you have no obligation under the WEEE regulations to take back WEEE (unless you are also a UK WEEE producer) but your business customers may well ask you about disposal routes for like for like take back and end of life returns.

Customers outside the United Kingdom should contact their supplier for further information on the arrangements in place for their own country.
