As part of our commitment to care for the environment, Disney Store are pleased to offer a free take back on old waste electrical or electronic equipment (WEEE) on a like for like basis.
How do I know if I can bring my item back for recycling?
If your item has an electrical function, or has a picture of a crossed out wheelie bin (an example of this is below), it’s eligible for this service. Please don’t throw this item away! Instead, please bring this back to your local Store and a Cast Member will be able to safely dispose of this for you when purchasing a like for like item.
Why should I bring the item back?
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. The UK’s fastest growing type of waste is unwanted electrical equipment, and if this isn’t carefully disposed of, it can end end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination. This can harm both wildlife and human health.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 require UK distributors to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of WEEE. UK distributors (including retailers) are required to 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 met these requirements by offering all customers buying new electrical and electronic equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like for like basis.
