When you buy any new electrical appliance such as a GPS, radio, lantern, torch, pedometer etc, you can take your waste electrical equipment to a recycling facility for safe and environmentally responsible processing. You can find your nearest recycling facility by visiting www.recycle-more.co.uk and entering your postcode. It will then be dealt with in an environmentally responsible manner.
We have joined a UK wide distributor take back scheme (DTS) to assist in delivering UK wide WEEE collection system and encourage our customers to recycle these goods. If you have an old electrical or elecronic product that has reached the end of its life, you can deposit it free of charge for segregation and recycling at Civil Amenity Sites which are registered as DCF.
WEEE Regulations have been designed to prevent/reduce the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment by promoting its reuse, recycling and recovery. The separate collection of WEEE saves energy and resources and avoids hazardous materials from going to landfill.
Products which are covered by the WEEE Regulations have a crossed out wheelie bin symbol on either the product itself or its packaging. This symbol aims to encourage you to identify and dispose of WEEE product separately from other household waste when it reaches the end of its life.
To find your nearest WEEE collection point visit www.recycle-more.co.uk. More information can be found on the website or by calling the recycle-more helpline on 0845 068 2572.
