You can now recycle your old electricals with the Hertfordshire Fireplace Gallery.
If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free
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 are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.
If you are having your fire/fireplace installed:
We will remove and dispose of your old electric fire or unit at the time of installation of your new fireplace as per your sales order.
If you are having your fire/fireplace delivered by us on supply only basis:
We can collect your old electric fire or electrical unit at the time of delivery. Please advise us prior to, or at the time of delivery. Alternatively, you can drop this into our showroom at your convenience.
If you are collecting your fire/fireplace from us:
You can bring in your old electric fire or electric unit at the time of collection or at a later date if this is more convenient, for us to dispose of on your behalf.
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.
