The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximize 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.

Why Recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the 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 a landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.

Under the directive we must allow customers of new electrical items the opportunity to recycle the old electrical item, For instance if you buy a motor then you will be able to send us back your old motor on a like for like basis. You cannot send back another item i.e a garage door , window, another electrical item such as a kettle .

To recycle You must bring the item to us or send us your old WEEE item with proof of purchase of the new item on the outside of the box with the box clearly marked "WEEE Inside". You are liable for postage of the item. We do not offer a collection service and will not collect any item on delivery of a new item for logistical reasons. Alternatively your local recycling center offers a specified area for the correct disposal of WEEE.

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.
