W.E.E.E Directive / Recycling Old Appliances
The UKs Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all retailers of electrical goods assist in delivering a UK-wide collection and recycling system to encourage consumers to recycle old or unwanted electronic equipment.
There are several ways this can be done. You may either take the item to your local council recycling site or you can contact them to arrange a home collection of larger items (there may be a small charge for this service). Alternatively you can bring the item in to one of our stores; please contact us for your nearest location.
Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams and much of it can be recycled and resources recovered to make new consumer products. All electrical items sold now carry the 'crossed out wheeled bin' symbol. Unwanted electrical items should not be placed into the normal domestic waste stream. Please contact us if you are unsure what to do with your appliance.
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we offer a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries You can return your waste batteries to our business premises either Store or Service Department in person. Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.co.uk. Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
