In July 2007 the UK introduced Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations to allow members of the public to deposit old electrical and electronic items at recycling sites across the UK, free of charge.
Electrical and Electronic Equipment is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the UK, increasing by at least 5% each year. The public dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of waste every year in the UK, and landfill sites are now reaching full capacity. Much of this waste can be recycled, and the resources recovered to make new consumer goods. The WEEE regulations aim to reduce the quantity of electrical and electronic items disposed of in this way, and will encourage everyone to play a part in protecting our environment for future generations.
Motabitz Accessories t/a Fasteronline fully support the regulations. There are two ways you can recycle your old electrical item. Visit your nearest recycling centre or return your old item to us after you have received your new item.
To find your nearest recycling sites for waste electrical and electronic products, contact your local council, or visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and type your postcode into the recycling bank locator.
If you wish to return your old electrical appliance to us you must do so within 28 days of your new purchase & arrange the return yourself. The cost of return must also be borne by you. Please quote your original invoice number on the outside of any packaging or we will be unable to accept the return.
We can also accept your old like for like electrical appliance at any of our retail stores. You will need your original receipt.
Since 5 May 2009, the UK's Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations require those who manufacture, import or produce one tonne of batteries or those who place products containing batteries onto the UK market to be responsible for the collection, treatment and recycling of the waste batteries. In the UK, we use 600 million batteries every year - an average of 21 per household. In 2007 just 3% of batteries were being recycled, the rest were going to landfill. The UK is aiming to meet targets of 25% recycling of batteries by 2012 and 45% by 2016.
Everything from AAA cells to mobile phone batteries and button cells used in hearing aids and watches, must be separated from household rubbish and placed into designated recycling bins in shops or other recycling points. Recycling facilities are available in all Motabitz stores.
We are also aware of how this legislation impacts on the products we select, and all our products which fall under the WEEE and batteries regulations are clearly identifiable with a crossed out wheelie-bin symbol.
Fasteronline recommend that professional advice is taken when fitting any product that may alter the original design or performance of the vehicle.
Some products are designed for competition or ‘off road' use only. If this is the case the product packaging will display this. If you are unsure about the legal use of a product on the road please contact us .
Where vehicle manufacturers makes, models and names or logo's are used, these refer only to a product being ‘suitable for' and does not infer original equipment manufacturer supplied or approved. Please be certain that you are happy with the safety of any product before using your car on a public highway.

YUASA Battery Sales (UK) Ltd - Battery Guarantee Conditions & Exemptions
Yuasa batteries sold as replacements are guaranteed against premature failure due to:- MANUFACTURING OR MATERIAL DEFECTS only.
The battery guarantee does not cover failure resulting from:
Sulphation - What is Sulphation? Sulphation is a chemical process which can occur in any battery. This can happen as a result of a battery being allowed to remain in a discharged state (<12.40V) either on/off a vehicle for a period of time. This can be caused by the vehicle charging system incorrectly charging the battery, a parasitic drain on the electrical system, vehicle used for short journeys only, infrequent vehicle use or long periods of inactivity (seasonal garaging). Sulphation significantly impairs battery performance and lifespan and will result in premature failure
Wear and tear - What constitutes fair wear and tear? The loss of plate active material caused by the natural cycling of the battery when in service resulting in a gradual loss of performance over time
Deep cycling - What is this? A greatly increased loss of plate active material and loss of performance as a result of being rapidly/repeatedly charged from a deeply discharge state (<65% state of charge)
Overcharging - How can a battery be overcharged? The vehicle charging system fails to charge the battery at the correct voltage, resulting in battery overheating, electrolyte evaporation, accelerated break up of plate material and loss of performance
Incorrect application If the battery fitted to the vehicle has insufficient capacity compared to the OE requirement, the battery is likely to fail prematurely. Always fit the correct battery as recommended in the Yuasa application list – failure to do this will immediately invalidate the battery warranty
Physical damage This can be caused to a battery during storage, handling or if incorrectly installed on to vehicle
