From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation. This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
The definition of a WEEE product is one whose primary function is dependant on electrical currents to carry out the main function, e.g. a toaster. However, some product, such as a child's soft toy with an electric circuit, is not classed as WEEE as its primary function is a toy. For further details on product definitions, please click here
A take back service operates within Bulldog Direct. retail outlet, whether you purchase in-store or online. When you purchase a new electrical item from Debenhams you can exchange an old similar item (e.g. a toaster for a toaster).
In order to do this, you must take your new purchase receipt to store in order to prove that the old item you are bringing back has a new similar purchase to link to.
You have 28 days from date of purchase to bring back the old item to the Bulldog Direct. head office.
This period is lengthened to 48 days for internet customers.
You may also take the item(s) to your local authority refuse collection depot if this is more convenient.
