Since July 2007 the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations have applied. The regulations were introduced to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill and to ensure that equipment collected separately is dealt with properly.
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
If you're buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free. 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 and should be disposed of seperately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
