If you're buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's 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 when purchasing a new item from us. Please send your WEEE item back to our warehouse:
Whistl Fulfilment Ltd. (Thane Direct UK),
2 Belkin House
Express Business Park
The package must be labelled recycling to ensure the correct action is taken upon delivery. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossedout 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.
