Disposal of Electrical items under the WEEE Directive
As a participant in the Scheme Toy Electric Cars have a duty to advise you of the following under Regulation 33:
It is a requirement of each member state to minimise the disposal of WEEE as unsorted municipal waste and instead aim to achieve a high level of recovery in a environmentally sound manner and Toy Electric Cars fully supports this policy. Accordingly when we receive a returned vehicle we will dispose of it at our nearest available recycling centre where the product can be re-used, repaired or recycled. If you chose to dispose of the vehicle yourself, we urge you to do the same.
If you are intending a disposal yourself, you need to be aware that electrical items may contain hazardous substances dangerous to the environment and human health - this particularly impacts electric batteries, motors and circuit boards, so please take care if seperating these items out from any waste.
Finally you should be aware that any items carrying the crossed out wheelie bin symbol, such as batteries, should not be disposed of in your normal wheelie bin collections and should be handed in for specialist recycling at your nearest recycling centre. Please ensure you take care and wear gloves when handling such items to minimise the chance of electrical or chemical shock.
All waste items should of course be kept out of harms way away from children, pets, wildlife and natural water courses such as streams or rivers.
