Disposal and Recycling of old equipment

Electrical and electronic equipment should never be disposed of with general household waste but must be collected separately for the proper treatment and recovery.

The crossed-out bin symbol, placed on the product, reminds you of the need to dispose of the product correctly at the end of its life. In this way you will assist in the recovery, recycling and reuse of many of the materials used in this product. If you are purchasing an equivalent item and are in the UK, you may send printers at the end of their life, to Photocentric for disposal. Please contact us in order to arrange the return an item of WEEE under these regulations. If you are not purchasing a new, equivalent item, it is your responsibility to dispose of your WEEE.

If you are a business in the UK wishing to dispose of or recycle a printer supplied by Photocentric, please contact us to return it, or telephone WeeeCare on 0844 8002004 and quote WEE/CC5607UY.

If you are a consumer, to find your nearest recycling site for WEEE, contact your local council or visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and type your postcode into the locator.

Please help us to minimize the effect we all have on the environment by recycling your Waste Electrical and Electronic products (WEEE). Where possible, also recycle your packaging. Thank you.
