What is WEEE?

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is a European Directive which was introduced with a view to minimising the impact of electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) on the environment, by increasing re-use and recycling and reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill. The key effect of the legislation allows our customers purchasing electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) to return their waste, this can be brought back to our store or sent to us, please note you can only return a like for like product and any products sent back to us is at your own expense. If you wish to use this service you must do so within 28 days of purchasing your new item. Find more information on WEEE recycling, and locate your local recycling centre at www.recyclenow.com

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.

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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 are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

If you have any WEEE items to be returned please send them along with a copy of your order to:
