Our WEEE Number: WEE/MM3864AA
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, though you’ll need to cover the cost to return it to us.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01256 844028 and ask to speak to a member of staff from the LED team. Alternatively, you can visit this website for information on how to dispose of your WEEE items locally: https://www.recolight.co.uk/free-recycling/
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed‐out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or 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. Those establishing their own take‐back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like‐for‐like basis.
Additionally, where store space allocated to electricals is over 400m2 distributors must offer free take back for all small electricals or they must support the national network of WEEE recycling centre’s established by local authorities.
