WEEE Regulations & Recycling

  • The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment for recycling.
  • The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
  • Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination.
  • Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
  • Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
  • Barras Home Improvements Ltd - www.barras.co.uk - are doing their bit under these regulations to offer our customers take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical Appliance, by taking away your old appliance when we deliver your new one.

Secure Technology

  • We are aware of the concerns customers have about entering their card details when carrying out a transaction. We have therefore implemented the following measures to ensure that paying via our Website is as safe as possible:
  • All your credit card and personal information is encrypted and held on a secure SSL (Secure Socket Layer) server. This protects data during transit, in particular the credit card information, from being intercepted and misused by hackers.
  • We use 128-bit encryption (this technology scrambles the data relating to your account to ensure that your information cannot be read by anyone else) and constantly update our technologies in line with new security measures.
  • Any information transmitted to us is encrypted (scrambled) whilst it is sent over the Internet. When it reaches us we then encrypt the content so that only authorised personnel can access it. This makes it very difficult for this data to be intercepted.
  • We ask you to enter the CV2 security number from the back of your credit or debit card, which helps to reduce the risk of Internet fraud being carried out.
  • You should ensure that the technology you are using is also secure.
