WEEE Regulations

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations

As a responsible retailer, Fraser Hart Ltd is committed to reducing our environmental impact and complies to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Regulations).

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.

Fraser Hart provides a take-back service free of charge

If you purchase a new electrical product from Fraser Hart, we will recycle your old product for free. This offer applies to new like-for-like purchases made in any of our stores or online at www.fraserhart.co.uk.

Please note that we can only take back old items in our stores. If you purchased a new electrical product online and want us to recycle your old one, please bring your old item into your nearest Fraser Hart store, together with proof of purchase of the new product.

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.
