LOOK FOR THE LOGO

Even if your old product doesn't have the ' crossed out wheeled bin' symbol, the good news is that when you are purchasing a new product, we'll gladly accept and recycle your old electrical and electronic equipment to the best of our ability.
BENEFITS OF RECYCLING
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
