Recycling and Disposal of Goods
Many electrical items can either be repaired or recycled. Saving natural resources and helping to protect the environment. Electrical equipment which is not recycled ends up in landfill where hazardous substances can emerge. Resulting in the contaminations of water, soil and air which can be harmful to wildlife and our own health.
As a member of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS) BeamLED.com is committed to providing customers who are purchasing new electrical equipment with the opportunity to recycle their unwanted electric goods free of charge.
In addition to our support of WEEE the Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, our company is also working to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2012 we invested in Solar PV panels, enabling us to power our head office and warehouse facilities in Burnley with clean, sustainable energy.
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, BeamLED.com is now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. Please return your waste batteries or electrical items in person only to:
BeamLED.com, LDG, BB11 5UB.
You can recycle your old electrical devices free of charge at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode. To find your nearest waste portable battery recycling facility visit www.recyclenow.com.
Alternatively, most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries. Some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points, which you may find to be more accessible.
