Distributors of WEEE (electrical and electronic equipment) have obligations under Regulations 31, 33 and 34 of the WEEE regulations Part 5.
WEEE distributors must offer a take back scheme of old WEEE items on a like for like basis when a customer buys an equivalent item. They are only obliged to accept WEEE items that fulfil the same function as the new item being purchased, however if the distributor wishes they can accept other/additional items.
It is then their responsibility to dispose of the WEEE.
Records must be kept of any WEEE units returned to a store for a period of 4 years. The records have to contain a brief description of the WEEE item, the date it came into the store, and the date at which it was disposed of safely.
