WEEE recycling

As part of the European Commission Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, we share responsibility with customers to ensure products which reach their end-of-life are recycled at an approved Authorised Treatment Facility to minimise environmental impact.

What our customers need to do

UK customers

To be compliant with the WEEE Directive customer should first contact CBNG at

CBNG will email a Waste Transfer Note and a list of Licensed Waste Carriers that you can use to return the end-of-life products to our Authorised Treatment Facility (MDJ Light Brothers Limited) for recycling.

Contact your nearest approved Licensed Waste Carrier from the list to arrange and pay for transportation of WEEE from your business premises to MDJ Light Brothers Limited.

As stated in our terms and conditions of sale, it is your responsibility to pay for WEEE collection using one of our approved Licensed Waste Carriers.

European customers outside the UK

Customers should contact their local re-seller for recycling or, if the products were purchased directly from CBNG (referred to as “Distance Selling” in the WEEE Directive), they will need to make their own recycling arrangements.

Commercial implications

CBNG products are very competitively priced. Any increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as CBNG is normally reflected in a price increase in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices of our products, CBNG has decided to share these new environmental costs directly with our customers.

We believe in being transparent on any new environmental costs that our products need to address. Our approach to sharing these new environmental costs is:

CBNG pays for the costs of treatment, recycling and recovery of the WEEE by MDJ Light Brothers Limited to meet the targets set by the WEEE Regulations; CBNG pays for the costs of data management and reporting to the Environment Agency to demonstrate compliance with all administrative requirements of the WEEE Regulations; customers pay for transportation to MDJ Light Brothers Limited.
