Recycling

You can now recycle your old electricals with us.

 

If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free

 

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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.

Leading Edge Concepts are subject to regulations by WEEE 2006 which is basically the Act which helps prevent electrical items ending up in a landfill.

If you wish to return any electrical item that has been purchased by you then you can do one of three things.

 

1. Please send it to us at the address below. We will not be able to offer you any money or refund you the delivery charge but we will recycle it and help you save the environment.

 

2. Drop it off at our store, address below, during our opening hours 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

 

3. When we are delivering your new electrical item our installer/driver will collect your old electrical item, at no cost to you.

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 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.
