Please do not throw items marked with the wheelie bin symbol in your bin. This is because:
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 items they will end up in landfill, where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and also human health.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of waste electricals. In the UK, distributors including retailers must offer all customers buying new equipment a take-back facility for their old electricals. This is done on a like-for-like basis in stores, or by supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities.
As a responsible retailer , Harts Of Stur has met these requirements placed on us by offering all customers buying new electrical equipment take-back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis, Unwanted old electrical items should be returned to the address below within 28 days of purchasing your new product.
