The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was introduced into UK law in January 2007 by the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Regulations 2006.
The WEEE Directive aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it.
Batteries should not be disposed of in general household waste, but separately collected to ensure the correct treatment and recycling of the substances they contain. Battery recycling ensures the recovery of these materials and prevents any potentially harmful effects on both the environment and human health.
Everyone can contribute to this initiative by actively participating in the collection and recycling of used batteries.
Glasgow Sound Centre is a member of the Zoltan World Wide Batteries Compliance Scheme and make a financial contribution to cover the costs of recycling these domestic batteries.
