Under The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, UK distributors are required to maximise the separation, 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.
This means that when you buy a new spray machine or power tool from us, if it means your old machine would become redundant and otherwise go to waste, we can help you dispose of it in a responsible manner.

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.
