Specialist Waste & Recycling

We now offer a recycling service for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that you’re able to return to our shops.

Waste Electrical, Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest-growing type of waste. A lot of electrical items can be either repaired or recycled, saving  on natural resources and the environment. If not recycled, electrical equipment often ends up in landfill, where hazardous substances can leak and cause soil and water contamination, which can then harm both wildlife and human health.

Identifying What Can Be Recycled

All new electrical and electronic products sold have a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol to help you identify which products are recyclable, or could be considered for repair or re-use.

Recycling Items In Store

You can bring your old electrical items to be recycled at any Glasswells shop location when purchasing a like-for-like item – please take your old item to the Gift Department at our Bury St Edmunds or Ipswich stores.

Please make sure that the item you’re returning is both clean and dry. You can return a like-for-like item within 28 days of your new purchase with a valid receipt.
