Unwanted electrical equipment (including spent light bulbs and tubes) is the UKs fastest growing type of waste, and sending it to landfill can cause lead and other toxins to leak out and contaminate soil and water, harming wildlife and human health.
The WEEE Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of waste materials. In the UK this means that retailers like us must offer our customers buying new equipment a free take-back service for their old electricals.
If you’re not sure if your electrical item can be recycled, have a look for the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging, or on the item itself. If the symbol appears on the replacement item, this is an indication that the old model should be recycled.
We’re pleased to offer our customers free recycling for eligible household electrical items on a like-for-like basis so when you buy a new item from us, we will make sure your old model is taken care of.
You can return your electrical items to us for recycling to our business premises in person – 24 - 26 Vincent Ave, Crownhill, Milton Keynes, MK8 0AB and we will organise their safe removal. Please do not post light bulbs or tubes to us.
