WEEE Directive Information
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.
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 items.
If you are a domestic customer you may send any unwanted electrical appliances you are replacing with a Record Power electrical appliance to:
Record Power Ltd
11 Midland Way
Derbyshire S43 4XA
We will recycle the unwanted item(s) at our cost although the method and cost of transportation to our premises is the responsibility of the customer. If the item is too large or difficult to arrange transportation then please call us on 01246 571 020 and ask for the technical department to discuss collection options. Collection charges may apply.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol, as shown below. 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.
