Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Responsible Recycling

At Kenwood we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously, unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and human health. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. 

Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.  In the UK, distributors (including retailers) are required to provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, Kenwood have met these requirements by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities.  Kenwood are also a founder member of the REPIC WEEE Compliance Scheme, to find out more information about recycling and where your nearest recycling centre is click the REPIC button below.

REACh and RoHS

Chemicals and hazardous substances legislation

What is REACh?

Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals legislation.

This legislation controls chemicals and substances. For our business, it defines the safe levels of certain substances within the products, packaging and spare parts we place on the market.

What is RoHS?

Restriction of Hazardous Substances legislation.

This legislation restricts hazardous substances within the products we place on the market.

What we do to control substances

  • We hold declarations from our supply chains to show that every product complies with REACh legislations before products are put on the market.
  • We hold declarations from our supply chains to show that every component complies with RoHS legislation before products are put on the market.
  • A product will not be sold until we hold test reports and or declarations that show the parts comply with both legislations.
  • Tests are done by expert independent laboratories. The laboratories use scientific machines that very accurately check compliance so that when the test shows a PASS result we know we comply with the appropriate legislation.
  • We have management systems in place to regularly police hazardous materials, these include declarations from our supply chains, factory audits and ongoing product surveillance tests.
