Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local GO Outdoors. To find your nearest store, visit the Store Finder website and type in your postcode.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s 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’re proud to support the Waster Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive by accepting electrical equipment & batteries to be returned to our GO Outdoors stores. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin. Find out more about the return process for WEEE & batteries below.
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. As a responsible retailer, we have a process in place that allows you to bring back old electrical items when you purchase a replacement from us.
