Myecohub is registered with the European Union (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations 2014 (S.I. 149 of 2014) and/or where applicable the Waste Management (Batteries and Accumulators) Regulations 2014 (S.I. No. 283 of 2014).
Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and batteries often contains hazardous components and substances which can be damaging to the environment and may have negative effects on human health when they become waste (WEEE)1 . There is a Producer Responsibility Initiative (PRI) in place in Ireland to fund the recycling and safe disposal of 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.
Our commitment as a retailer that cares about the planet is to take back Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) of similar type on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis, free of charge, and insure it is that WEEE is stored correctly (weatherproof covering) and transferred to contractors operating on behalf of a compliance scheme (WEEE Ireland/ERP Ireland).
Further information relating to the WEEE and Waste Battery Compliance Scheme can be found on www.weeeireland.ie
