What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximize separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK retailers must provide a process which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge, on a like-for-like basis.
Find more information on WEEE recycling and locate your local recycling centre at www.recyclenow.com
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fasting growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, the electrical equipment will end up in landfill, with the potential of hazardous substances leaking and contaminating soil and water – harming both wildlife and human health.
We can help
If you are purchasing a new ink cartridge, toner cartridge or printer, we are pleased to offer our customers the opportunity to recycle their old one for free.
Please contact our Customer Service team to request a recycling envelope or pre-paid label, to enable you to forward your old ink cartridge, toner cartridge or printer to us for recycling.
To remind you that electrical equipment can be recycled, all products are now marked with a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol. Please recycle all products that bear this symbol.
Please Note: Only one voucher code to be used per transaction. Voucher codes cannot be used in conjunction with products marked “special price” or “exclusive price” on the website. We are unable to honour any voucher codes after the expiry date.
