WEEE - Disposal of Electrial and Electronic Equipment

Product Take-Back Programme in the United Kingdom

 

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 in the UK the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

 

  1. You can return your items to our distribution point at 1-3 Kildare Close, Eastcote, Ruislip, Middx HA4 9UR.
  2. We can arrange collection of the replaced item at the time of delivery. Please make this request and give details of the item being replaced in the Customer requests and Comments box at the Order Review Stage and we will contact you using the information you have provided and arrange the details.

 

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.
