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. The Waste Electrical and 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.

As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by offering all customers buying new electrical equipment free take-back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis in our stores. Unwanted items should be returned within 28 days of purchasing your new product.

We offer a free ‘Take Back’ on your old electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This is done on a like-for-like basis. Therefore, if you purchase a new electric fireplace from us you can send your old electric fireplace back to us and we will dispose of it for you.
