As a responsible distributor, we operate in accordance with the latest government WEEE regulations.
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 also human health.
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.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
Take Back In Store
Powerbutton/Freemans Television will take back your unwanted electrical appliances of the same type as the one you purchased from us regardless of the brand or whether you purchased in-store, by phone, online or by email.
We will also take back items free of charge that have the same function as the item you purchased, for example, we’ll take back an old kettle or toaster when you buy a new one.
You have up to 28 days to bring back all types of electrical and electronic equipment that we sell.
Please note: All items must be dropped back at our retail store Freeman Television, 47 High St, Portishead, Bristol, BS20 6AA.
How are we helping?
