If you’re having your new TV delivered, we just ask that you make sure your old TV has been unplugged from the mains and disconnected from any other equipment (i.e. Blu-ray player, games console etc.). If you’ve purchased a Knowhow TV set up service, we’ll disconnect your old TV for you.
If your old TV happens to have SMART features, please ensure that your personal data has been deleted prior to us receiving it, as we will not carry out any data removal.
Please note: If your product is being delivered directly by the manufacturer, free recycling is available for replacement products only; i.e. an old TV will be taken away if you’re having a new TV delivered.
Before bringing your unwanted electrical items into store for recycling, please make sure the product is in a presentable condition and if your product has any personal data (i.e. PC, Laptop, Mobile Phone, etc.), please ensure that the data has been deleted prior to us receiving it, as we will not carry out any data removal.
Since July 2007 the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations have applied. The regulations were introduced to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill, and to ensure that equipment collected separately is dealt with properly.
All new electrical and electronic equipment we sell at Currys and PC World stores can be recycled. You can tell because our products include a ‘crossed out wheeled bin symbol’ like this.
Even if your old product doesn’t have the ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol, the good news is we’ll gladly accept and recycle your old electrical and electronic equipment to the best of our ability.
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
