You can now recycle your old electricals with us.
If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free*
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 can help
We offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.
To take advantage of the WEEE 'take back' scheme you must notify us when placing your order that you have an item to send back. You must do this by typing "WEEE take back" followed by the make and model of the item in the "Shipping Notes" box during the checkout procedure. If you do not notify us at the time of placing the order we will not be able to accept the item back.
Once your order is received, we will email you with instructions and the address to send your item to. You will have 28 days to return your item* from the date of placing the order.
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.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. 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*. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
*You must pay the shipping costs when returning the item to us.
