Recycling Policy
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.

Why recycle?

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 are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

If you have electrical and/or electronic equipment supplied by us which you want to recycle, you can either:

  • Bring your old product into our facilities
  • Return it to us using our RMA Procedure


If you are recycling a product that holds personal data (i.e. PC, Notebook, Mobile Phone, etc.) you will need to have removed the information from your old product prior to us receiving it as we will not carry out any data removal.


If you want us to collect equipment supplied by us, before we arrive, we would ask that you ensure that the old equipment is in a fit state to be taken away.

Self-Disposal and Recycling

If you wish to arrange for recycling yourself, please contact your local council who will be pleased to advise you.

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.
