Recycling your old electricals is easy!

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is one of the fastest growing sources of waste around the world and in UK.

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 both wildlife and human health.

We’re proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment. Anything around your home with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled and given a new life as part of life-saving equipment, bicycles and more.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin. If we don’t recycle or reuse our old electricals, we are losing valuable resources forever – from copper and aluminium to plastics and gold.

Before recycling any of your old Salter items, please make sure to remove the batteries first. All batteries must be recycled to avoid damaging the environment, you can find your nearest battery recycling point here.

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.

How are we helping?

In the UK, distributors including retailers must 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 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).

 

To find more information on WEEE recycling and to locate your nearest recycling centre please visit the Recycle Your Electricals website.
