Electrical Recycling

If you are buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one providing it’s a ‘like for like’ exchange.  

Why recycle?
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs 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.  

What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.  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. 
Find more information on WEEE recycling, and locate your local recycling centre, at www.recyclenow.com.   

We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items. Please note that we will only accept items for recycling that match what you have purchased from our site.  

As such please send your item to:
BrandAlley Customer Service
2nd Floor
120 Moorgate
London
EC2M 6UR  

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
