Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulation 2006
To reduce the amount of electrical items going to landfill the government has introduced, under European Law, new regulations called The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations.
This regulation allow members of the public to deposit old electrical and electronic items at recycling sites across the UK, free of charge. Products marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
The Lollipop Shoppe offers a free ‘take back’ service to end users of electrical and electronic equipment on a like for like basis ie: if you purchase a phone we will recycle your old phone. In store customers using this take back service must return their old item in store within 28 days of purchasing their new item. For online customers wishing to use the take back service, please contact for details on where to send your item. Customers are responsible for any transport costs incurred from the return of any WEEE goods.
