WEEE Waste Electrical And Electronic Equipment

With effect from July 2007, the UK’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all producers of electrical equipment are now obliged to pay for recycling of household electrical goods, where previously this bill was met by councils or items were not recycled at all.

These regulations also require that all retailers both actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment.

So that you can get your waste electrical goods recycled, The Range is offering a like for like recycling scheme. Simply purchase a new toaster (for example) and within 28 days bring in to the store your old toaster and a valid receipt and we will arrange for it to be recycled for free.

Not all council sites are suitable to collect all types of waste electrical goods but to find out your nearest participating site (including other collection facilities that may not be operated by the council) and for advice on all aspects of recycling at home, please visit Don’t forget to have your postcode ready to use in the ‘recycling facilities’ locator.

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams and much of it can be recycled and resources recovered to make new consumer goods. To remind consumers of the collection methods available which in turn allow recycling to take place, all electrical items sold now carry the ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol. To ensure your waste electronics don’t contribute to damaging the environment, please use and recycle today.

Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13 Aug 2005 should display this symbol on the packaging or product. Either send the product to be repaired and reused or use the bank locator to find where it can be recycled.
