Recycle your electricals trial

In ten of our North London stores we’re trialling the donation of small electrical items with Recycle Your Electricals, a not-for-profit organisation who aims to stop electricals being hoarded and thrown away, and ensure they’re reused and recycled instead.

If you live near or around one of the following stores, simply bring your items in-store to give them a new lease of life and help ensure everyone has access to electricals at affordable prices:

Items will be resold to help someone approaching the end-of-life or living with grief so they can access the support they need.

We’d be delighted to receive your small unwanted electricals, including working flat TV screens, but we’d not be able to accept anything bigger than a microwave. All your items will then be tested and sold.

Electrical items we can’t accept

For safety reasons, however, we are unable to sell the following electrical goods. For anything that can't be accepted, visit Recycle Your Electricals to find your local drop-off points for these items.
