Recycling and WEEE

At Oranges and Lemons we recommend recycling equipment that has become uneconomical to repair.

Many electrical items can be repaired or if not, can be recycled.

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations aim to maximize separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, retailers may 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:

  • Offer to take back an item of waste electronic equipment when selling a new item with the same function i.e. on a like for like basis.
  • Offer the in-store service for free - but we may charge to cover transport costs if collecting items from customers’ homes.
  • Give customers 28 days to bring back their waste item.
  • Take back all types of electrical and electronic equipment that we sell on this basis.

The nearest general Recycling point to the shop is:

Household Rubbish Re-use & Recycling Centre
Smugglers Way
SW18 1JS

We can service equipment from companies we stock, provided parts are still available. Alternatively if you want to offload some equipment that still works there are sites like Freecycle and Freegle where you can advertise equipment.

If it's an elderly Linn LP12 or a used piece of Naim equipment you may be able to trade these in against something new. Give us a call and we can advise.

If all else fails, you may be surprised with what some classic Hi-Fi equipment sells for on eBay, there are plenty of enthusiasts out there!
