WEEE Policy

WEEE Policy

You can now recycle your old electricals with us.

If you’re buying a new electrical item from us, we will recycle your old one on a like for like basis.

Why recycle?

The UKs Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all retailers of electrical goods assist in delivering a UK-wide collection and recycling system to encourage consumers to recycle old or unwanted electronic equipment.

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. We offer a take back service which is available and accessible to our customers. Please contact our Customer Service team on 0845 605 9699 to organise or return to Unique & Unity Returns, PO Box 16240, Alcester, Warwickshire, B49 9BX

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 a take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
