WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE) regulations is now UK law.


These regulations aim to prevent and reduce the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment by promoting its reuse, recycling and recovery.


These regulations mean that suppliers of equipment must offer customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old lamps free of charge.

Items covered by the WEEE Regulations will have a crossed out wheelie bin symbol either shown on the product itself or its packaging.  These items must not be thrown away in your household waste.


Candle and Blue is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers who purchase electrical equipment from us the opportunity of a free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis.

WEEE products which are no longer needed are to be returned to us within 28 days of purchasing their electrical item.

Please note we do not cover the cost of returning the item to us.  

If you prefer you may take the product to your local recycling centre.
