Recycling Your Old Appliances

Disposing of an old appliance in a safe and environmentally friendly way can be a real challenge. If you are replacing an old appliance, the last thing you want is your old one still in the house, and sometimes even moving it can be a problem. That's where we can help.

When we deliver a new appliance, our home delivery team can take away your old appliance and ensure it is properly recycled.We can arrange this when arranging your delivery date and time. You MUST tell us if you want us to remove your old appliance, or there may be a charge levied.

If you have purchased from our store, we also offer free in-store take back of your old electrical items on a like-fo-like basis. We can only accept items that fulfil the same function as the new item being purchased. You must return your old item to our store within a reasonable period of time following your new purchase.

We will make sure your old appliance is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way and in accordance with our obligations under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006.

Please note:

1. If you are recycling a product that holds personal data (e.g. laptop, PC etc) you will need to have removed the information from your old product prior to us receiving it as we will not carry out any data removal.

2. If you have agreed an installation or recycle service then please ensure your old appliance is disconnected prior to delivery. If you have a refrigeration product it must be fully defrosted and free of water. Where appropriate, your appliance should be disconnected by a qualified engineer e.g. only Gas Safe Register approved engineers should disconnect gas and dual fuel cookers.

3. This service only applies to like-for-like products.

 

Local Recycling Services

If you have a small portable item to recycle or can move your old appliance yourself, you should first make sure that the item can be recycled. To do this, just look for the crossed-our wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. This means that you should either send the product to be repaired and reused or take it to your local recycling facility. The saff there will make sure everything is disposed of responsibly and in a way that does not affect the environment. There is no charge for this service.

Recycling your old batteries

We are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. Just return them to Bulwark House, 5, The Bulwark, Brecon and we'll do the rest. 

Examples of portable batteries are AA or AAA batteries and batteries used in mobile phones or laptops. Please note that we are unable to accept industrial and automotive batteries.

Look for the Wheelie Bin logo

All new electrical and electronic equipment we sell can be recycled. You can tell because our products include a ‘crossed out wheeled bin symbol’ like this:
