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.

The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, A1 Comms are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. Simply take you waste batteries to your nearest Gomobile store and

Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may
find stores in their local area more accessible.
