Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations
The WEEE regulations were updated in 2019.
Under the legislation electrical products must be marked with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol, in order to help consumers identify that the product must not be disposed of with household waste, but instead should be taken to a WEEE collection point for recycling.
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their end-of-life electrical items when purchasing new electrical items from us. Please speak to a branch colleague for details on how to dispose of your WEEE. Please click here for further details.
To locate your nearest WEEE collection point go to www.recycle-more.co.uk.
