Recycling (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and batteries)

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.

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.

Misco UK supports the recycling of waste electrical items and portable batteries as it is better for the environment by ensuring lead and other toxins in electrical goods do not contaminate the soil and water. Contamination by such toxins can have very harmful effects on the environment.


You can find the location of your nearest recycling centre by visiting www.recyclenow.com or www.recycle-more.co.uk

Batteries can also be taken to your local recycling centre or alternatively you can visit one of our offices at Greenock, Wellingborough or Weybridge and deposit them in the battery recycling containers. Batteries should never be put in general household waste or recycling bins - look out for the crossed out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or the battery itself.

Misco UK does not accept Automotive or Industrial batteries.
