Do your bit…
Recycle your electricals at One Stop!
We offer a take back scheme in store where we can recycle all the electrical items we sell in store (even if you didn’t buy that specific item from us) as well as batteries, vapes and other small electricals.
Recycling and reusing unwanted electricals can help save the planet, boost the economy and improve lives. Not only that, electrical and electronic equipment contains materials, parts and substances which can be dangerous to the environment and be harmful to human health if not disposed of correctly. Did you know that electrical and electronic equipment is now the fastest growing waste stream in the UK and across the world? Discover the impact of reusing and recycling your electricals here.
What can I recycle?
Anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled or reused! We can recycle:
• disposable vapes
• rechargeable vapes (we’ll remove the battery and recycle both)
• phone accessories such as chargers, cables and headphones
• plug in air-fresheners and other small electrical items
The materials from recycled electricals can be used in everything from children’s playgrounds to lifesaving equipment, while donated tech can help bridge the digital divide. You’ll find this symbol on all your electrical items. It is a reminder to recycle your old electricals, rather than binning them.
Reducing waste electricals
As part of our commitment to reducing the amount of unwanted electrical waste being incinerated or sent to landfill sites, we’ll recycle your old electricals free of charge when you buy new ones. Together we can stop precious resources from being lost forever, save lives and help protect the planet. Every year, we collect, reuse and recycle thousands of tonnes of old electrical and electronic equipment.
We take all your old electricals to a recycling plant for processing and separate into individual materials, so they can be turned into new, more useful things.
