Physical activities can be hazardous. The selection and use of suitable equipment requires skill, and you should ensure you are appropriately equipped and trained. In the interests of your safety and the safety of others, you should also ensure that you are properly trained in the techniques you will need to employ in pursuit of your chosen activity.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The Directive also means that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
Goods are marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol to show that they were produced after 13 August 2005 and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
Sports Direct is obliged under this Directive to offer its customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from Sports Direct a new Electrical or Electronic product.
For example, if a customer bought a new battery/stopwatch/pedometer from Sports Direct, Sports Direct would accept their old battery/stopwatch/pedometer and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to Sports Direct within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
