Helping the environment

  • Waste electrical and electronic equipment is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK, increasing by 5% every year.
  • In 1 year in the UK we produce enough waste electrical and electronic equipment to fill Wembley Stadium 6 times.
  • Our aim is to reduce the amount of electrical waste that ends up in landfill and in turn help to protect the environment from further damage; together we can make a difference!

You can now recycle your old electricals with us.

If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free

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.

We can help. We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

You can return them to The Effortless Host, 15 Warwick Road, Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 6YW.

Wherever practical, old electrical waste should not be disposed of with your household waste. You can locate your closest participating collection site at (please remember to have your postcode to hand).

To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheeled in symbol.

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 free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
