REPIC works closely with manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment to help them manage their responsibility for e-waste, batteries and packaging across the UK.
Meeting their e-waste, batteries and packaging obligations is our top priority, which we do by recycling and recovering valuable materials in the safest and most environmentally-friendly way possible.
Current legislation requires the UK to collect and treat 65% of the weight of all the electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market in the past three years and 45% of the average annual amount of portable batteries placed on the market – that’s a lot! And we all have a role to play in doing the right thing to help meet these targets.
If you have old electrical and electronic items and/or batteries sitting in cupboards, drawers, your attic or your garage – don’t throw them in the bin!
Think about passing them on to family or friends, reselling them or giving them to a reuse organisation. If they can’t be reused or resold, taking them to a local recycling centre can help protect the environment and preserve our natural resources.
