The Waste Batteries & Accumulators Regulations

Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Lawson HIS are now offering a take-back scheme for all portable waste batteries.

You can return your batteries to our business premises in person (please do not send by post/carrier/etc), or you can take your batteries to a local Waste Portable Battery Recycling Facility. Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, so end users may find stores in thier local area more accessible.

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE)

Lawson HIS are members of the Valpak Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS). Recycling facilities are available for all customers at which you can deposit your old electrical products. The legistlation aims to:

  • Make good use of materials that make up electrical equipment waste rather than disposing of them in landfill.
  • Prevent the negative effects of sending what are often hazardous goods to landfill


As a responsible, conscientous business, Lawson HIS has chosed to group together with others in joining this take-back scheme, through which we have paid towards the provision of improved recycling facilities for our customers. You can find your nearest facility at

WEEE Wheeled BinThis symbol is known as the 'Crossed out Wheelie Bin Symbol'. When this symbol is marked on a product or packaging, it means that the product should not be disposed of with your general household waste. Only discard electrical/electronic items in separate collection schemes, which cater for the recovery and recycling of materials contained within. Your co-operation is vital to ensure the success of these schemes and for the protection of the environment.
