Waste & Recycling
Waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling
The UKs Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations allow people to recycle old electrical and electronic appliances at sites across the UK free of charge. To help customers to identify which products are recyclable (or should be considered for repair or reuse), all new electrical and electronic products sold now carry a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol.
As a retailer of electrical products, we have a legal obligation under these regulations. This involves contributing funds to the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS), which is investing £10 million in local facilities so customers can locally recycle old electrical and electronic appliances. As a producer of own-brand electricals, we also fund, based on our market share, the recycling of waste Electricals. This is done through a separate compliance scheme.
A customer information poster is available in all our stores which outlines what options are open to our customers, as well as information on where they can recycle old electrical and electronic products.
To find your nearest recycling sites for waste electrical and electronic products, contact your local council, or visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and type your postcode into the recycling bank locator.
