  • 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 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.

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 in our stores. Unwanted items should be returned within 28 days of purchasing your new product.

How can I recycle?


If you've got a small portable item to recycle, or can move your old appliance yourself, first, you should make sure your old electronics can be recycled. To do this, just look for the crossed out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. This means you should either send the product to be repaired and reused, or take it to your local recycling facility .
The staff there will make sure everything is disposed of responsibly in a way that doesn't affect the environment. There is no charge for this service.
