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 they will end up in a landfill where hazardous substances can leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.
What is WEEE?
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013
- The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations were implemented in the UK in order to protect our environment. Along with other retailers, we have joined the Distributor Take-Back Scheme (DTS) which will allow you to deposit your old electrical/electronic items, free of charge, to recycling points set up around the country.
- Visit www.recycle-more.co.uk to find out where your nearest recycling point is. Unfortunately we cannot accept electrical items back for recycling. Instead we have contributed to the funding of an alternative network of UK recycling facilities as stated above.
Waste Battery Regulations
- Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we are now offering a take-back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person.
Alternatively, you can find your local portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.co.uk
