For OKI, caring for the environment is just as important as complying with environmental regulations.
WEEE is the European Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment Directive. It was introduced in 2007 as an industry-wide initiative to minimise the environmental impact of electronic equipment, by ensuring that producers accept responsibility for taking back used electrical products and recycling them.
OKI is fully compliant with the WEEE Directive and provides a collection and recycling scheme.
All OKI products manufactured at our Cumbernauld production facility in Scotland which are covered by the WEEE Directive incorporate the WEEE symbol (as shown here on the right) on their packaging to indicate that they should not be disposed of through normal waste channels and, instead, should be recycled. Please contact us for further information.
Although not covered by the WEEE directive, we also operate a used OKI Original Consumables Recycling Programme, to support our commitment to reducing impact on our environment. Original consumables items can be returned and the recycled in to materials to make many new products such as compost bins, benches, plant pots and even wind turbines.
