WEEE Regulations:

Free take back of like-for-like waste electrical items


Nigel's Eco Store now offers free take-back of like-for-like waste electrical and electronic equipment (subject to postage costs), under the WEEE Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of electrical equipment, such as high street shops, and internet retailers like us, must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.

Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

Nigel's Eco Store is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

For example, if a customer bought a new eco toaster from us, we would accept their old toaster back and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely.

Take-back is offered subject to:-

  • We can only take-back like-for-like items eg old toaster for a new toaster, or old kettle for a new kettle.
  • Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
  • Customers wishing to return a WEEE item will have to pay for any transport costs incurred in returning the item to us.


Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:



Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

If you have any questions on how or whether we can take back your waste electrical items, or for help and advice on how to do so, please call us on 0800 288 8970, or e-mail us at helpme@nigelsecostore.com.
