Recycling Your Old Electronics

There are many different approaches to recycling and we like to think that the best one is the oldest one and instead of throwing things out give them away or get them repaired.

If you are upgrading to LED and don’t know what to do with your old HPS or CFL then you can either bring it in to us for recycling or give it away to a friend or a local school or community project.

It is a sad fact that in the UK there is some fly tipping of old hydroponic goods occurring all over the country and all of these items can be recycled in some way instead becoming an eyesore on our beautiful country and bringing disrepute to the hydroponic society in general.

So please think before you throw things away, we are members of the Distributor Takeback Scheme (DTS) and will happily take in all your old hydroponic electronic goods for recycling in the correct manner.

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 Can Help

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

Please bring your old items to our store and we will recycle them accordingly.

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.
