Is this symbol displayed on them?
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. Some of the materials in batteries can be recycled too. If you don't recycle these items they will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.
"The Active Life Store" is supporting the national network of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling centres established by local authorities.
Please recycle any unwanted electrical and electronic items at a recycling centre near you. You can locate your nearest by clicking here.
