Why Recycle?

Electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) is rapidly becoming one of the most prevalent forms of waste in the UK. It is crucial to recycle these unwanted items to conserve natural resources and protect the environment. By choosing to recycle, you prevent electrical equipment from ending up in landfills, where hazardous substances can contaminate soil and water, posing a threat to wildlife and human health.

How do I know what can be recycled?

The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol serves as a reminder that such items should not be disposed of in regular waste bins. Please refrain from discarding any electrical equipment, including those marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol, in your household bin.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive in the UK makes it mandatory for distributors, including retailers, to ensure that old electronic items are collected separately and processed in an environmentally friendly manner. In order to comply with this directive, responsible retailers like Smeg will accept your old product back when you are purchasing a new one from us on a like-for-like basis.
