About WEEE Ireland

WEEE Ireland is a not for profit organisation, founded by producers of electrical and electronic appliances in order to comply with the legal obligations imposed by the WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC.

WEEE Ireland will organise for the treatment and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment and batteries and accumulators from authorised collection points, on behalf of its Producer members.

Objective

The WEEE objective is to provide cost effective compliance for Producers to meet the requirements of the WEEE Regulations 2005 and Battery Regulations 2008, whilst minimising the cost to the consumer.

Portable Battery waste

Since September 2008, all shops that sell batteries must take back your waste batteries for free recycling, regardless of whether you purchase anything in their store. This is part of a European Directive which came into force in 2008, to encourage battery recycling across the EU.

Batteries can be recycled in any outlet that sells batteries of similar type. Household batteries such as AA, AAA and button cell batteries can be brought back to your local supermarket, newsagent or discount store. Car batteries can be brought back to your local garage or motor factor, and electric fence batteries can be brought to your local agri-store.

WEEE Ireland have distributed 100,000 battery recycling boxes to shops around the country. Look out for the blue battery box in stores near you.

(PLEASE DO NOT POST).
