|Electronics, Cables and Accessories||WEEE||Consumer Electronic Waste Recycling||Our products are designed with longevity in mind, and even when one customer no longer needs it there is always the second hand market allowing the product to have another life. However, should you need to dispose of your product, please add this to electrical waste collections rather than general waste so the valuable raw materials can be recovered and recycled appropriately.||Product||
|Lithium Ion Battery||WEEE (w/o bar)||Consumer Electronic Waste Recycling||Batteries must never be disposed of with household waste, only through electronic or battery waste or recycling schemes.||Internal Battery||Circuit|
