Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive

TC can now recycle your old electrical products for you.
If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free.

Why recycle?
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.

All returned items will be put into our segregated waste area. They will then be periodically collected by a certified waste recycling body that will take the appropriate course of action and issue the correct certificate for approved disposal.
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 this symbol) in your bin.

If you have any questions about this scheme, just ask a member of staff or get in touch.

What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical and 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.
