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.

Therefore, if the customer has purchased for example a new computer from us the customer can return an old Computer back to us. Our customers have 28 days in which to return the old item to Portable IT Ltd. If the item was purchased online, the customer is responsible for any postage costs incurred returning it to you. Or Portable IT Ltd can have it collected and a reasonable fee will be charged for collection.

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.
