The UK's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations allows you to be able to dispose of old electrical and electronic items at recycling sites across the UK, free of charge.

Why should I recycle my electrical or electronic equipment?

Unwanted 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. Not recycling electrical equipment will lead to it ending up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out, causing soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and human health. It is important we all play our part in conserving the environment.

How can I tell if my electrical products can be recycled?

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.

How can I recycle my old electrical items?

You can recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, please visit the Recycle More website.

Can I bring you my old electrical equipment?

We do not accept old electrical equipment. Instead, as a responsible retailer meet our requirements by contributing to the funding of a network of WEEE recycling points through the Distributor Take-Back Scheme.
