Yes, as of Feb 1, 2019, no WEEE FEE --

Check your receipts for electronics purchases to ensure no "residual" WEEE
Fees appears.

As a IT reseller with some significant stocks, I am on the hook for
significant fees paid that are not recoverable(the OES folks are not
returning emails/calls) and  that I reconcile as a cost of doing business.

I would wager there are many in the same boat as I and might be tempted to
sneak in a WEEE fee just to recover the charge.
Maybe they will simply raise the prices a bit on the item or other stuff,
no idea.

Yes, be mindful as a consumer.
