What is WEEE?You can now recycle your old electricals with us If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one (and any other small electricals you have) for free.
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.
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 HelpWe are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us. Please Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to dispose of your WEEE item.
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.
