What is PRF?
Producer Recycling Fund (PRF) contributions have been introduced in Ireland under the 2002 EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The prices of some electrical items therefore include a contribution to a PRF to ensure that waste electrical and electronic equipment is collected and recycled in a responsible manner. PRF contributions have been setup and agreed according to specific product types and these costs are the same regardless of what brand or from where an item is purchased.
Do you take back used batteries?
Yes we do. In our stores you will find recycling bins for batteries. The batteries that we accept are AA, AAA, C or D and also the flat batteries that are found in watches and toys. Unfortunately we do not accept back any Industrial or car batteries.
How much will it cost?
There is no charge to return products to any of our stores or warehouses.
Why should I recycle through Easons.com?
We will ensure that your old product is disposed of correctly to reduce the potentially harmful effects caused on the environment and to conserve natural resources.
