In-line with WEEE legislation, old electronic items must not be disposed of with standard waste but should be taken to a central collection point for recycling.

All electrical products should now carry a symbol of a crossed-out wheelie bin.

This is to remind consumers that the product should be disposed of carefully and not thrown out with general household waste. Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination, which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment.
