WEEE Recycling & Compliance

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regs exist to reduce the amount of electrical waste that goes into landfill. Simply put, it's the very best way of recycling your electronic and electrical equipment - this includes your used leisure batteries.

Here at Fogstar, we take recycling, and our environmental responsibility very seriously. According to the Environmental Agency, in 2020, 459,737 tonnes of household WEEE was collected in the UK. We have both a legal and ethical responsibility to look after each other and our planet.  

This is probably a good point to mention the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (WEEE) directive. If you want to read about this directive in more depth, you will find further information here; Government Guidance Notes (Department for Innovation and Skills).
In order to protect yourselves, the environment and to comply fully with the WEEE directive, we suggest you read and fully understand the following information to dispose of your leisure batteries safely and in accordance with the latest guidance;
  • Find a local recycling unit online at Recycle Now
  • Consider donating any undamaged and working batteries for use by someone else
  • If you’ve bought the batteries from a local retailer, take them back, and they will be able to dispose of them safely on your behalf
  • If you live near the Fogstar Unit bring your used batteries to us and we will dispose of them for you
  • Don’t ever throw them in the bin.
All of our batteries adhere to WEEE protocol (products or packaging). You'll find our batteries marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. This symbol serves as a reminder for both individuals and businesses to separate their WEEE and dispose of it responsibly. 
As always, if you have any questions on battery disposal and recycling, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.
