Protecting the environment
Separate collection. This product must not be disposed of with normal household
Should you find one day that your Black & Decker product needs replacement, or if it is of no
further use to you, do not dispose it off with other household waste. Make this product
available for separate collection.
Separate collection of used products and packaging allows materials to be recycled
and used again. Use of recycled materials helps prevent environmental pollution and
reduces the demand for raw materials.
Local regulations may provide for separate collection of electrical products from the
household, at municipal waste sites or by the retailer when you purchase a new product.
Black & Decker provides a facility for the collection and recycling of Black & Decker products
once they have reached the end of their working life. To take advantage of this service please
return your product to any authorised repair agent who will collect them on our behalf. You
can check the location of your nearest authorised repair agent by contacting your local Black
& Decker office at the address indicated in this manual. A list of authorised Black & Decker
repair agents and full details of our after-sales service and contact are available on the Internet
