WEEE Compliance - Recycle your old electricals with us!
We’re pleased to offer our customers free recycling on all household electrical items. Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste, and sending it to landfill causes lead and other toxins can leak out and cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and human health.
Fortunately, many electrical items can now be repaired or recycled. That’s why we’re offering free recycling on a like‐for‐like basis – so when you buy a new item from us, we will make sure your old model is taken care of.
If you’re not sure whether your electrical item can be recycled, have a look for the crossed‐out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging, or on the item itself. If the symbol appears on the replacement item, this is also an indication that the old model should be recycled.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of waste electricals. In the UK, that means retailers like us must offer all customers buying new equipment free take‐back for their old electricals.
For more information on recycling electricals go to www.recyclenow.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
