Electronic Repairs | WEEE recycling

Our engineer is fully qualified to inspect and repair all
electronic equipment.
We take £20 plus VAT deposit for the initial inspection. If the repair can be done
within that cost we will commence. Should the repair on inspection
turn out to be more than the estimate, and / or more than £50 plus VAT we will advise you before proceeding any
further.

Should the engineer feel that the cost of repair is more than the equipment
is worth we will advise you.
If the equipment not be able to be transported by yourself we will either send the engineer

to yourself or alternatively collect the goods for repair.

To comply with the new legislation regarding disposal of electronic
equipment, we can take your old equipment for safe disposal

(subject to transportation costs)

free of charge subject to you buying an equivalent or better replacement.
Should you wish merely to dispose of your old equipment (without making a
purchase) we can do that also. However charges will apply.

Call for a free quotation.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law.

The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and

recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.

Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

UK Musical Instruments Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

For example, if a customer bought a new keyboard from us we would accept their old keyboard and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:

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 so that they can be recycled.
