WEEE Recycling & RoHS

WEEE & RoHS

All products supplied by Nimbus Designs Ltd are sourced from WEEE registered suppliers, all products also conform to the RoHS directive to ensure there are no hazardous materials in the product. We are not a producer as defined by the WEEE regulations.

All EEE products which includes cables should no longer be disposed of by just throwing them away, when you buy a new EEE product from us we will recycle your old product for you free of charge on a like by like basis, for example if you buy a new scart lead we will recycle your old scart lead if you require us to.

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste, and sending it to landfill causes lead and other toxins can leak out and cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and human health.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should be marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol as shown below and be disposed of separately from normal household waste:-

Why recycle?
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination harming wildlife and also human health.

We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old EEE item when purchasing a new item from us. Please speak to a member of staff for details on how to dispose of your WEEE item. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
