WEEE Regulations

TJ Hughes will recycle your old appliance for free!

What is WEEE?

The United Kingdom is under an obligation to minimise the disposal of Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in domestic waste and encourage recycling, recovery and environmentally sound disposal.

TJ Hughes is committed to promoting the re-use, recycling and recovery of WEEE by offering an in-store take back service for our customers who purchase replacement items. Products or packaging will be marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol to indicate that the product must not be disposed of in domestic waste but disposed of through an approved WEEE take back scheme.

For details of your local collection facilities please contact your local authority or visit

TJ Hughes – Making a difference to the environment we live in. Buy any electrical product from us and we’ll recycle your old one for free.

How it works:

TJ Hughes offers an in-store take back on any electrical and electronic equipment which we sell when buying a similar replacement. Customers who purchase electrical items online can return their similar products to their local store, free of charge, by showing their online receipt.

We regret that we do not offer a free of charge collection service due to deliveries being handled via a third party.

We regret that we are unable to accept an old item in-store where there is a risk to Health & Safety or any product entailing personal data.

The Waste Batteries and Accumulators


Under the Waste Battery Regulations, TJ Hughes are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries.

For orders originally placed over the phone or online, the Waste Battery can be taken into your local TJ Hughes store. We will not accept batteries sent back to TJ Hughes by post without authorisation on speaking to the Customer Care Team. The local TJ Hughes store will deal with the Waste Batteries free of charge; please do not hesitate to speak to an assistant in store.

Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at

Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
