The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive ("the WEEE Directive") is a directive from Europe. As a member of the European Union, the United Kingdom implemented the WEEE directive as UK law on the 2nd January 2007. The purpose of the WEEE Directive is to reduce the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (known as "WEEE") being disposed of to landfill by promoting the separate collection, treatment and recycling of WEEE for environmentally sound disposal, so as to minimise the potential effects on the environment and human health that may arise from the presence of hazardous substances commonly found in electrical and electronic equipment ("EEE").
As a retailer of electrical goods, X Rocker is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations relating to WEEE ensuring that we are endeavouring to fulfil our environmental responsibilities at all times. From July 1st 2007 Ace Casual LTD (GB) trading as X Rocker will provide a free take back service on X Rocker products to all customers who make a "like for like" purchase from X Rocker.
Provided that within 28 days of a purchase of EEE from X Rocker a customer brings in an old item of EEE to X Rocker UK warehouse (regardless of from where and when it was purchased) AND provides a valid receipt of the new EEE purchased from X Rocker, then X Rocker will accept the old item free of charge.
X Rocker free take back service will only be available to customers where there is a like for like comparison between the new purchased product and the old product brought in for disposal (example: an audio gaming chair in that has been replaced, headset controller etc). X Rocker does not offer a home collection service.
