Clarkes of Cavan takes back your WEEE on a one-for-one, like-for-like, basis free of charge in-store or at the time of delivery of your new product.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is taken back free of charge on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis. Waste batteries including rechargeable batteries are taken back free of charge. You are not obliged to make any purchase when returning old batteries. Each local authority must also accept household WEEE and small batteries free of charge at its recycling facilities. All WEEE and waste batteries must be recycled and should not be placed in any of your household wheelie bins. Make sure you always recycle all your old electrical goods and batteries.
Many everyday consumer items are electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), such as mobile phones, computers, drills, hairdryers, as well as industrial items such as medical devices, and laboratory equipment. When these items reach their end of life they are defined as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Lots of electronic goods contain hazardous materials like heavy metals or batteries. These materials can cause serious environmental damage and are dangerous to human health. There is a system in place in Ireland to help recycle these products. Recycling rather than dumping means valuable components can be used again in new products and there will be less mining of raw materials.
