Recycling

You can now recycle your old electricals with us. 

  

If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free 

  

Why recycle? 

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.  

  

Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.  If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health. 

  

We can help  

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us. 

  

Simply send your unwanted electrical item back to us after receiving your new electrical item. We can also arrange collection of your unwanted electrical item at the purchasers cost. 

  

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin. 

   

What is WEEE? 

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.  In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
