Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations
The UK's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations provide members of the public the opportunity to deposit their old items for recycling with the aim of the reducing the number of electrical items that are disposed of in landfill sites or burnt. Such equipment can pose potential adverse effects on the environment and human health due to the presence of hazardous substances and therefore correct disposal is essential. The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol indicates that a product can be recycled as part of the WEEE Regulations and should not be disposed of in your bin.
We offer customers buying new electrical equipment from us free take-back of their old items on a like-for-like basis in our stores. You can simply take your unwanted items to any of our stores within 28 days of purchasing the new product provided you take a receipt as proof of a like-for-like purchase.
If you decide not to bring back your unwanted items to store then the website www.recyclenow.com contains information relating to WEEE, including the location of the local council waste collection sites for waste electrical items.
The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations
Under the Waste Battery Regulations, we are now offering a take-back scheme for all portable waste batteries. Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.com
