The WEEE Directive was introduced into Ireland on 13th August 2005; the principles of this directive:
The implementation of European Directive 2006/66/EC on batteries and accumulators means that importers and manufacturers (known as Producers) of batteries and/or products with batteries incorporated have an obligation to organise the collection and recycling of waste batteries in Ireland.
WEEE and waste batteries must not be disposed of in the normal municipal or recycle bin. The crossed out wheelie bin symbol on the batteries reminds us not to put these items in the bin but segregate them for recycling.
Misco will take back WEEE on deliver of the new item of EEE. We will give the customer 24hrs notice of the delivery and if we are unable to do this and the WEEE is subsequently not ready for collection on delivery of the EEE, we will return within 15 days to collect the item of WEEE, again giving 24hrs notice.
If, on delivery of EEE, an item of WEEE is not ready for collection despite the 24Hr notice having been given, the purchaser can bring the WEEE to any of the listed take back locations below within 30 days of delivery of the EEE.
Misco will take back WEEE free of charge on a one for one, like for like basis i.e. you purchase a DVD player from Misco you can return your old DVD player to any of the Misco allocated recycling points below. Batteries can be returned to this address as long as they are of equivalent type to those sold by Misco.
Proof of purchase from Misco will be required; please include the Misco Sales order reference with your return.
Also distributors (retailers) of batteries are legally required to take back waste batteries subject to the following;
Batteries and WEEE may contain chemicals and metals that could cause harm to human health and the environment if not managed properly. Proper recycling of these items can recover materials for use again in industry, help conserve space in our crowded landfills and protect our environment from contamination. Therefore, make sure you dispose of all waste batteries and WEEE responsibly.
