Disposal Of Your Old Appliance
You have 3 options when disposing of your old appliance depending on the choices you make during you purchase.
If you choose to collect your item from our showroom you can return your old appliance to us within 28 days and we will dispose of it for free. Please bring a copy of your receipt.
If you have your item delivered but not installed you must disconnect your old appliance before we deliver and we dispose of it for £15 per item on all appliances except side by side or french door style refrigeration where the charge is £25 per item.
If you are having your appliance delivered and installed we will disconnect it and dispose of it for the currently advertised charges.
Where a product is being delivered nationally we recommend you contact your local council for the most environmentally friendly method of disposal as we will not be able to collect your old appliance.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
Gillman’s offer a collection and disposal service if we are delivering your appliance. This carries a charge as advertised if completed at the time of delivery.
Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams. Items marked with this symbol must be disposed of in accordance with WEEE regulations.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste system in the UK.
Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead & other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife & also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save out finite natural resources & also reduces the environmental & health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new electrical & electronic (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going to landfill sites.
Gillman’s is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers a free take-back of their WEEE on a like for like basis when they buy a new electrical product from us. We only charge to cover our costs in collecting any WEEE appliance.
An example - If you purchase a new taoster, we will take back your old one for free so that it can be safely disposed of, preventing it from going to landfill.
You may also return your old appliance to our store within 28 days of your purchase and we will dispose of your item free of charge.
There are other ways to dispose of your appliance. Your local council will offer a collection service of large items, (this may carry a charge), and both small and large appliances may be taken to your local council recycling centre.
In Gillman’s store we also offer a battery recycling facility, just bring in your small batteries and we will get them recycled for you.
Gillman’s are registered to carry Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. Our registration number is: WEE/JG0060TU
