Responsible disposal of your product
Please do not dispose of your Ploom device in your household waste at the end of its working life. It contains electronic and battery components and should be disposed of as electronic waste. This can be done at your local recycling centre or through your dedicated kerbside collection, if your local authority offers this service. It is best to check with them to confirm or use the Waste Resources and Action Programme (WRAP) search tool https://www.recyclenow.com/what-to-do-with/electrical-items-0
There is no need to remove the battery from the device before you recycle it.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations aim to reduce the amount of waste deposited in landfill sites. Any electrical goods marked with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol need to be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
We do not offer a recycling service for our Ploom products. However, as a responsible business, we comply with and contribute to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (also known as WEEE) and the Distributor Takeback Scheme. These schemes provide financial contribution from manufacturers and retailers to support local authorities to recycle and divert household waste from landfill.
