The Waste Electrical and 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. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by offering all customers buying new electrical equipment free take-back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis. Unwanted items should be returned within 28 days of purchasing your new product.
Please do not throw electrical equipment (including those items marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin because unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. If we do not recycle electrical items they will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
