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

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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 item/s
after purchase like for like. For example if you purchase a remote control dalek we will
recycle an old remote control dalek of the same design for free.

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.
Please send old item/s back to 30 Coronation Street, Blackpool,FY1 4PB or drop into the store.

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.
