The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was introduced in January 2007 by the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Regulations 2006.
The WEEE Directive aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it.
Blue Lizard Reptiles are obliged therefore to offer our customers free disposal of their WEEE when you purchase a new electrical or electronic product.
Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 14 days of purchasing their new item.
Items can be returned to store, or posted back to us, but we will not accept returns of WEEE without a copy of the receipt or invoice for the similar purchased item.
