APC recyling and take back program header

With the rapid increase in popularity of electronic goods, discarded electronic equipment is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the industrialized world. This is an obvious issue that needs to be addressed, as it adds to already growing concerns about environmental sustainability.

To help reduce the levels of waste produced, conserve our natural resources, and minimize pollution, recycling has become very popular over recent years. This will need to become an essential part of our day-to-day in order to ensure a sustainable future and to protect the environment for future generations.

One way you can help in this fight to protect the environment is to make responsible decisions when your electronic products reach their end-of-life. APC by Schneider Electric are fully committed to this cause, offering environmentally sound product takeback and recycling programs.

Option 1 – Replacement Battery Cartridges (RBC)

When you purchase an APC RBC, your old battery will be taken back free of charge. Getting an APC RBC supports APC-authorized recycling for earth-friendly disposal.

Option 2 – Recycle Your Products

Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) contains materials, components, and substances that may be harmful to human health or the environment when waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is not handled correctly.

You can identify this equipment by a mark showing a crossed out wheeled bin. This symbol indicates that the piece of equipment must not be discarded with other household waste. To dispose of these items, it is important to get them collected separately.

There are multiple locations throughout the UK where you can recycle your electronic equipment. To find your closest recycling center click here.

Alternatively, Schneider Electric is a member of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS). For more information on this, click here.
