WEEE Compliance Policy
You can now recycle your old Fracino espresso machines with us. If you’re buying a new Fracino espresso machine or grinder, we will recycle your old one for free if require us to.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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 also human health.
We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old espresso equipment, grinders, glass & dishwashers, ice makers and table-top roasters when replacing with new equipment purchased from Fracino.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. We are also obligated under the Consumer Information Obligation (CIO). Companies establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
