FREE UK Delivery on ALL Items!

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 items.

If you wish to arrange a convenient time for you to deliver the old item back to us (at no cost to you), we will be happy to help. Simply email cs@eoutlet.co.uk and we'll get things sorted.

Please be aware that we are only able to offer this service when you (our customer) are purchasing the same type of product. We will take your old item on a like-for-like basis.

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.

Find more information on WEEE recycling, and locate your local recycling centre, at www.recyclenow.com.

Battery Directive Take back Information

What is the Batteries Directive?

  • This directive sets out clear guidelines for the collection, treatment and recycling of waste industrial, automotive and portable batteries.
  • All batteries are required to be labelled with the appropriate battery label.
  • The regulations have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection

 

How can I do my bit as a customer?

  • If you were to place your waste batteries in the household waste, these batteries would not be recycled and would continue to pollute the environment. By participating in sending back your waste batteries, they can be treated and recycled in accordance with the directive.
  • Both eoutlet and our customers can assist in recycling batteries.
  • We cannot recycle it unless you return it, so our customers have an important role to play in helping us to recycle.
  • Customers are not required to make a purchase from eoutlet.co.uk to be able to dispose of your waste batteries.
  • eoutlet will undertake their responsibility as both a Producer and a Distributor to dispose of these goods in line with European legislation
  • Please note: this service only applies to householders and not businesses
