Under the Waste and Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulation 2006 statutory instrument 2006 No 3289, we are pleased to accept the return of your old welding machine when purchasing a like-for-like new welding machine.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste, and sending to landfill causes lead and other toxins can leak out and cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and human health.
Fortunately, many electrical items can now be repaired or recycled. That’s why we’re offering free recycling on a like-for-like-basis - so when you buy a new item from us, we will make sure your old model is taken care of.
If you are not sure whether your electrical item can be recycled, have a look for the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging, or on the item itself. If the symbol appears on the replacement item, this is also an indication that the old model should be recycled.
The Waste Electrical or Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of waste electricals. In the UK, that means retailers like us must offer all customers buying new euipment free take-back for their old electricals.

We are striving to be a more environmentally friendly company and wish to see all old welding equipment disposed of correctly, avoiding incorrect methods of disposal, such as dumping, using standard wheelie bins, etc,
