WEEE Compliance

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations came into force on 1st January 2014.

As a producer of electrical and electronic equipment we have obligations placed on us to help ensure that waste products are disposed of correctly.

Evergreen Energy is registered with the Environment Agency. Our unique compliance number is:


All Evergreen Energy’s products that are subject to the WEEE Directive are compliant with the WEEE marking requirements and are marked with the “crossed out wheeled bin” symbol.

This symbol on the product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with normal household waste. Instead, it is your responsibility to dispose of your waste equipment by arranging to return it to a designated collection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. By separating and recycling your waste equipment at the time of disposal you will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that the equipment is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about how to recycle your Evergreen Energy supplied waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local authority or our customer services department on 0800 612 4342.

Advice on recycling electrical goods

Recycling is the safest and most responsible way to dispose of electrical item that are faulty or otherwise beyond repair.

170 million new electrical items are purchased in the UK each year, but we currently recycle less than a third of these when they come to the end of their lifecycle.

Electrical and electronic equipment is made up of a wide variety of materials, many of which can be reused (for example, there’s enough steel in an iron to produce 13 steel cans).

By recycling your old and unwanted electrical items, you’re doing your bit to help the environment by preventing potentially hazardous waste from entering landfill and causing soil and water contamination.

WEEE from private households

Private household electrical waste can be recycled via your local collection facilities; your local authority can give you information on where you can do this. If you are unable to use this service, you may return products to us for recycling. Although we will recycle the waste products at our expense, you will be responsible for the carriage costs of returning the products to us.

WEEE from users other than private households

Evergreen Energy will ensure the proper recycling of waste from any brand purchased before 13th August 2005 arising at Evergreen Energy’s customers (other than private households) from the purchase of Evergreen Energy products on a like for like basis.

For Evergreen Energy products sold after 13th August 2005, Evergreen Energy will ensure the proper recycling of waste from those products arising at the customer’s location within the United Kingdom.

The cost of recycling described above are included within the product price. The cost of collecting such waste from customers’ premises are not included in Evergreen Energy’s standard pricing. However, Evergreen Energy can provide a chargeable collection service or addresses where customers can return their products. All returns must be issued with a Return Number before customers arrange delivery of WEEE product.
