The role of Weebot
In addition, we have recycling obligations related to the WEEE, batteries and packaging we place on the European market.
This takes the form of reporting directly to governments through our partners and a regular recycling programme.
Without recycling, electrical equipment will end up in landfills where hazardous substances will contaminate soil and water, harming wildlife and human health.
What can be recycled?
A complete discharge and then a complete charge is called the life cycle of the battery. The life cycle of a battery can vary from 500 to 1200.
When the life of the battery is over it does not mean that it can no longer be used. The cells can be refurbished. Our partners dismantle each battery to recycle the plastic, the printed circuit boards and the cells. This is why it isimportant to recycle your batteries properly and not to throw them away in the household waste!
Our boxes have been designed to withstand the various journeys that take them to your home. They are therefore large and strong. In order to facilitate the collection of bulky packaging, please fold them correctly so that they take up as little space as possible.
What are electronic components? On Weebot products, these are the following elements:
- The controller
- The charger
- The display
- The engines
TIRES AND TUBES
Tires and tubes can also be reused. Tyres are often made of natural rubber and can therefore be used to make new products
How to recycle?
Here are the links to our trusted partners who support our recycling programme and are committed to respecting our ecosystem:
Ecologic is an eco-organisation, i.e. a non-profit company invested by the State with a public utility mission consisting of managing the end of life of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). To do this, it collects, cleans up and recovers WEEE throughout France, ensuring that each stage is carried out in full compliance.
Since 2006, Ecologic has been contributing to the development of a circular economy based on prevention and awareness-raising, as well as on waste recycling, by working alongside all the players involved (producers, retailers, local authorities, SSE players, treatment operators, associations, etc.).
The recycling of electrical waste has been mandatory in France and the European Union since the publication of European Directive 2002/96/EC in 2003. The aim of this directive is to avoid pollution linked to the poor management of waste as well as waste in order to preserve natural resources.
From now on, you will see an environmental contribution line on your bill. It corresponds to the real cost of collection and treatment (decontamination and recovery of materials) of your electrical appliances at the end of their life. Thanks to this contribution and to the sorting actions of citizens, each year more than 600,000 tonnes of WEEE are collected and processed by the approved sector. When your electrical and electronic equipment is used, think about recycling! There are more than 4,500 collection points throughout France for your electrical waste.
