Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Policy
As a distributor and retailer of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) Origin Fitness has an obligation on two levels:
Business Sales: as a distributor for Manufacturers of Electrical Products, we offer a free collection service for all EEE.
