What to do with end-of-life electronics?

  • End of life electronics and electrical items are known as WEEE – waste electrical and electronic equipment.

  • From Curry’s website: 

“Whenever you like, and without buying anything new, you can take to your local Curry’s PC World store any electricals or electronics you no longer want for free recycling.  We accept everything from computers to toasters, and floor cleaners to TVs, whether bought from us or someone else.”
