Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

I LOVE my fridge - wouldn't part with it for anything.

This fridge is so roomy and easy access to all areas. I do not like the French door refrigerators at all. I particularly like the 3 pull out drawersin bottom freezer.

The entire fridge is so sleek and modern looking. I've had mine for 5 years and have had no problems at all. I LOVE it.

Water leaking in the bottom after 2 years and half and freeze food once in a while.It is not worth the money I paid for

Water leaking in the bottom,keeps the towel there forever. Space limited though huge fridge. Some freezing of the content here and there. So expensive for poor results in a short time.

It is very disappointing. Do not buy it

I love this fridge

I would recommend it - it fit perfectly into the space available, it's quiet, the food is properly chilled/frozen. It's very attractive.

No Issues Here

Unlike the other reviews i've had no issues with this fridge whatsoever. It has performed as expected and a non-magnetic face is not a bad thing at all, there's less clutter on the door.
