Electronic Recycling

WEEE makes environmental responsiblity easy!

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.

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's 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. If you wish to return an electrical item you can send your item to the below address marked with "WEEE Disposal."

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.
