Our responsibility to the environment reaches every part of the extensive supply chain involved in the design, manufacture and distribution of our products. It goes far beyond this when electrical and electronic products reach the end of their lives and need to be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way.
The WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations are UK laws that aim to minimize the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment. It covers any product with a plug or a battery, imposing several obligations on all producers of electrical and electronic equipment. It requires a high level of collection (including separate collection) of WEEE for treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal, so that the amount of WEEE going into landfill is reduced dramatically. Our compliance approach for each of these obligations is provided below.
We are responsible for the disposal of end-of-life electrical goods in an environmentally friendly way. Our products are designed to ensure that all of our equipment can be dismantled and the components and materials are recoverable.
All Moore Large subject products shipped from 13th August 2005 are compliant with the WEEE marking requirement. Such products are marked with the “crossed-out wheelie bin” WEEE symbol (shown, right) in accordance with European Standard EN50419.
