The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations have now been incorporated into UK law and as a result, all EC members have committed to reduce the amount of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment that gets disposed-of in land-fill sites.
All companies involved in the manufacture, retail and distribution of new Electric and Electronic Equipment have to take a lead role in helping to reduce the levels of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment placed in in traditional landfill sites. This is critical as some Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment can contain a number of dangerous or poisonous substances that could have the potential to foul ground water and soil, which could possibly result in a danger to public health and environmental surroundings.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol as shown on our packaging. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
This means that they should be separated from other household waste before being disposed-of.
Some WEEE-marked products can be recycled. As the physical size and number of land-fills diminishes in the UK, if we take a lead role now in recycling these WEE-marked products, we can leave more landfill available for other waste which cannot be recycled.
At Viper Cig, we support environmental sustainability. We are wholly committed to reducing any environmental impact our products may have, especially bearing in mind our ethos of helping customers make healthier, more convenient and cheaper choices.
That’s why we’ve introduced a new return service for all Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulated products. This means that if you purchase a product from ViperCIG that contains a battery (including Single Disposables) or mains/USB charging device from our online store, we will take-back the used products once you’ve finished with them and make sure that they are safely and securely disposed of and not simply placed into land-fill sites.
If you would like to return your WEEE regulated products to ViperCIG for safe disposal, then please post to:

Note: The postage costs are to be met by the customer and this policy is only available for ViperCIG branded products and products purchased at ViperCIG.co.uk
