Climate change is undeniable. Earth’s resources won’t last forever. We don’t question these realities — we challenge ourselves to ask what we can do about them. That's why we want to make it as easy as possible for you to do the same.
Unwanted electrical equipment is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the UK and Ireland. If electrical waste is disposed of in an unsafe manner it can contribute to causing pollution, human health hazards, and the loss of valuable finite resources.
In order to preserve and protect our environment, we all need to look at ways of becoming more sustainable.
We are proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment. All electrical equipment placed on the market after the 13th of August 2005 must be marked by the WEEE symbol, a crossed-out wheeled bin, to remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled.
Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your general household waste bin.
In the UK and Ireland, distributors including retailers are responsible for providing a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).
(WEEE) is Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. The WEEE directive requires all end-of-life electrical goods that have a battery or a plug to be disposed of in environmentally friendly way.
Recycle your non-Apple electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the WEEE Ireland website.
It's never been easier to upgrade your old device and lower the cost of a new one. Take your old eligible device to your local Compu b store and receive in-store credit on new products or a Stormfront gift card instantly. If your device doesn’t qualify for trade-in, you can recycle your device for free with us and get 10% off accessories. It's safe, secure and good for the planet.
