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 will end up in landfill where
hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination –
harming wildlife and also human health. We’re proud to support your local
authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment. To
remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with
the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment
(including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or
Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate
collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
How are we helping?
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 financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling
centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of
the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS). To find more information on
WEEE recycling and to locate your nearest recycling centre please visit the
Recycle More website.
