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.

All you need to do is inform us that you will be returning your unwanted products to us for recycling during your purchase.  We will then provide you with a return for recycling number and the return address to process this for you.  You will need to cover the cost of the return of the goods yourself and we will take it from there.  You can only return goods that are a "like for like" swap (eg. a camera for a camera, etc).  We reserve the right to refuse the delivery of goods should a valid returns number not be present. 

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.
