    Environmental Policy and WEEE

    Environmental Policy

    We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and to do so we:

    -          Will encourage you to only purchase what you need and not waste material. It might sound contradictory for a retailer to do so but we firmly believe that we all benefit, retailers included, from curbing waste and unnecessary purchase. We will therefore be happy to advise you as to what items will best suit your purpose.

    -          We actively research alternative processes and materials as well as vegan products.

    -          Our packing policy is: re-use, recycle, reduce. We actively collect used cardboard from local businesses which we cut down to size. Any plastic packing material we receive in parcels is collected and reused.  Any new packing material we purchase (kraft and printer paper, flow chips) is recycled and/or compostable. We are phasing out sticky tape to a new paper and fully compostable tape. We DO use plastic packing/wrapping with liquid chemicals.

     

    WEEE Regulations and Recycling

    WEEE

    You can now recycle your old electricals with us. If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free
    Why recycle?
    Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.
    Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
    We can help
    We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.
    Please return it to RK Photo Ltd, Unit 9, Devonshire Business Centre, Cranborne Road, Potters Bar EN6 3JR
    To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

    What is WEEE?
    The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
