Customer Message - Disruption due to Coronavirus *** Updated 01/06/20 ***

We are currently operating with a minimum of essential staff. Whilst we continue to dispatch orders, we would be grateful if customers would bear with us. Orders are being dealt with on a strict first come first served basis, but we cannot guarantee dispatch or delivery will meet our usual standards.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013

You can now recycle your old electrical equipment with us on a like for like basis.

So, for example, if you're buying a new thermometer, we will recycle your old one for free.

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.

If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.

We can help

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items when purchasing a new item from us. Please speak to a member of staff for details on how to dispose of your Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

WEEE Bin Symbol

When purchasing new equipment send or bring your old equivalent electrical equipment to:

Food Safety Direct Limited
Dale Street
Lancaster
Lancashire
LA1 3AW
United Kingdom

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.

Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
