Once you have opened a software package or are in receipt of a license key that has been generated for you the product is not returnable.

WEEE – Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment

Please do not throw electrical equipment including those items marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol in the bin as they should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

The WEEE regulations cover all electronic devices purchased from us and any batteries included with them. They vary depending upon whether you are purchasing from us for “household” or “business” use. For full information regarding these regulations we suggest you visit the Environment Agency web site.

In the UK the amount of waste electrical and electronic products we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental impact along with any associated health risks in sending such products to landfill. At Weather Shop we would encourage you to recycle your old electronic instruments when you purchase from us.

The regulations require us to offer you the opportunity to return your old product to us for disposal when you purchase a replacement and we are happy to facilitate that. If you are a “householder” and have bought a product from us to replace another with the same or similar functionality then you are able to return the old one to us and we will ensure that it is correctly disposed of.

However you might consider that the expense of sending (not simply the postage cost but also the carbon mileage cost) the old product or bringing it in person to us outweighs the recycling value. Indeed a better way might be to collect several items of mixed waste to make a visit to your local household waste recycling site worthwhile. They too will ensure that WEEE products are correctly recycled.

This applies to old product that has the WEEE symbol – a crossed out wheelie bin. Before you return any goods you should contact us for a return number and to confirm that the product you are returning is eligible. The goods for recycling must be returned within 28 days.

All of this includes disposing of used batteries. However as well as your local household recycling centres many retailers have recycling points for your old batteries whether or not you purchase new ones from them.
