The UK WEEE regulations require that businesses involved in the supply of electrical equipment take an active role in its collection and recycling. So that you can get your old electrical products recycled, Smiggle has made a financial contribution toward the development of improved recycling collection points (know as ‘Designated Collection Facilities’) throughout the UK through our membership of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS).
Smiggle does not accept returns of household WEEE in store and cannot accept WEEE returns for recycling, neither will we make arrangements for its collection. For your nearest recycling centre and for helpful tips on recycling please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk
UK households dispose of 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste every year. This is the equivalent of 150,000 double decker buses and would be enough to fill the Wembley Stadium 6 times over.
To remind you to recycle all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol. Please note that products bearing this symbol should not be disposed of as municipal waste and need to be kept separate from other waste to avoid potential harmful effects on the environment and human health as the result of harmful substances in Waste Electrical and Electronic equipment (WEEE).
