WEEE Directive / Recycling Old Appliances
The Importance of Recycling
Electrical equipment is the fastest growing category of waste in the UK. Many electrical products may be repaired or recycled, thereby conserving natural resources, and protecting the environment. Electrical equipment that is not recycled will end up in a landfill, where hazardous substances will leak out and contaminate soil and water, damaging wildlife, and human health.
What is WEEE?
If an item requires electricity to function properly, it is classified as WEEE. Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) is regulated to limit the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that is burnt or disposed of in landfills.
The WEEE regulation establishes a framework for customers to recycle their old appliances for free.
The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on old electrical equipment now serves as a reminder that it can be recycled. Please do not put any electrical equipment in your bin, including ones designated with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol.
How are we helping?
In the UK, distributors and retailers must establish a system that allows all customers purchasing new electrical equipment to recycle their old equipment for free.
We have met the standards put on us as a responsible retailer by financially supporting the nationwide network of WEEE recycling centres created by local governments.
