Electrical Items

You can now recycle your old electrical items 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.

We will take back on a one for one and a like for like basis your old electrical item when you purchase one from us. Please send the old item you are replacing to:

WEEE Scheme
Carole's Crafts
Aston House
West Lane
Hayling Island
Hampshire
PO11 0JA
England



To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol as shown above. 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.
