Cymbiosis WEEE Policy

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive



Recycle your old electrical items!

Here at Cymbiosis we are pleased to offer our customers free recycling on all electrical and electronic equipment.

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste. Electrical waste in landfill sites can cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and human health. Many electrical items can now be repaired or recycled. That’s why we’re offering free recycling on a like-for-like basis. This means when you buy a new item from us, we will make sure your old model is taken care of.

If you’re not sure whether your electrical item can be recycled, have a look for the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or on the item itself. If the symbol appears on the replacement item, this is also an indication that the   old model should be recycled.

The Directive

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of waste electrical and electronic equipment. In the UK, that means retailers must offer all customers buying new equipment free take back for their old electrical equipment.
