Legal & Regulations

3F Designs Ltd trading as Our Generation World operates under English Law and juristriction.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive)

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or WEEE) Regulations are now UK law. All European member states including the UK have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in our landfill sites.

It is important that the amount of WEEE going into landfill is reduced because:

1) Some WEEE can be reused or recycled. The amount of landfil space available in the UK is decreasing. If we can keep WEEE out of landfil sites it means thereis more space for non-recyclable waste.

2) WEEE can contain hazardous substances. When left in landfill sites hazardous substances in WEEE can pollute the soil and contaminate water supplies. This contamination can damage human health and the environment.

What are 3F Design's obligations according to the WEEE Directive?

Distributors of new Electrical and Electronic Equipment(EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. 3F Designs are 'doing our bit' under these regulations by offering our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy a new Electrical or Electronic product. For example, if you buy a new Electronic Scooter from us, we will take back your old Electronic Scooter and prevent it from going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. You must return your old WEEE within 28 days of purchasing your new item.

If you wish to return your WEEEE item, please contact us on 01904 202241

and we will send you a postage paid returns label.

3F Designs offers a "take back" service for waste batteries. Customers should contact our customer services department for details.

Which products fall under the legislation and how do I recognise them?

The WEEE Directive divides Electronic and Electrical Equipment into ten categories which include:

Category 4 - Consumer equipment (radios, hi-fi, musical instruments, videos, camcorders, etc.)

Category 7 - Toys, leisure and sports equipment (electric trains, games consoles, exercise machines, etc.)

Under the WEEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should be now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below: Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
