We are committed to reducing the impact of our products to the environment through design and process. The re-use of recycled materials reduces the demand for raw materials and helps prevent environmental pollution. Packaging and used products should be sorted for environmentally friendly recycling. We comply with all applicable laws and regulations and strive to minimise waste generation, re-use and recycle materials where possible.
Packaging should be sorted for environmental-friendly recycling. Our packaging is marked with a symbol which denotes that it can be recycled. For more details of the symbols used and where packaging can be recycled please click here.
Non Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE)

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
UK Producer No. WEE/DC0043SY/PRO
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. WEEE product is marked with the crossed out wheelie bin symbol shown. This requires separate collection. The product must not be disposed of with normal household waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
Local regulations may provide for separate collection of electrical products from the household, at municipal waste sites or by retailer when you purchase a new product.

Trend Service Agents (TSA´s) can be used as collection points on our behalf for unwanted Trend electrical Products. For the location of your nearest Trend Service Agent, see our Stockist Locator or alternatively for further details please call Trend Customer Services on 00 44 1923 249911 or email
In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Trend as a responsible web sale distance seller, have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).
Batteries are marked with a symbol which denotes battery type. In this case the symbol shown is for Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. Trend also use Lithium Metal batteries. When a battery pack needs replacing we recommend the following:
Discharge the energy from the batteries by running down the batteries completely, then remove from the tool. Ni-MH and Lithium Metal cells are recyclable; so do not throw them away with your household waste. They may end up in a incinerator or landfill, which must be avoided. Instead take batteries to a Trend Service Agent, your local distributor or local recycling station. If necessary, contact your local municipality for disposal information. The collected batteries will be disposed of properly and/or used for recycling purposes. Trend Producer Number BPRN00037
