WEEE Take Back Scheme

Simply Sound and Lighting are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us. Please contact a member of staff for details on how to dispose of your waste electrical or electronic equipment (WEEE) when you’re purchasing your new item or within 28 days of that purchase.

Please note, the take back service is free but you will be responsible for paying delivery costs for your item(s) from yourself to us in our UK warehouse.

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 human health.

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.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires UK distributors to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of WEEE.

UK distributors (including retailers) are required to provide 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 these requirements by offering all customers buying new electrical and electronic equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like for like basis.
