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’re proud to support your local authority in providing local  recycling facilities for electrical equipment. To remind you that  old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with  the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any  electrical equipment (including those marked with this 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.

How are we helping?

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. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS). To find more information on WEEE recycling and to locate your nearest recycling centre please visit the Recycle More website.

As part of the EEE regulations, Buildbase/Plumbase/Electricbase does not assume responsibility for the disposal of its own branded electrical products sold to business customers.
