Recycling & Disposal
Our roles as a company
As a member of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS) BigBathroomShop.co.uk is committed to providing customers who are purchasing new electrical equipment with the opportunity to recycle their unwanted electric goods free of charge.
In addition to BigBathroomShop.co.uk's support of WEEE our company is also working to reduce its carbon footprint and last year invested in solar PV panels, which are used to power our head office and warehouse facilities in Burnley.
Why is it important to recycle?
Many electrical items can either be repaired or recycled which helps to save natural resources and better the environment.
Electrical equipment which is not recycled ends up in landfill where hazardous substances can leak out, resulting in the contaminations of water and soil which can be harmful to wildlife and human health.
How do I know which electrical items to recycle?
As a reminder to recycle your electrical items applicable goods now come with the following label.
Please do not dispose of any electrical equipment including those marked with this symbol in your bin.
