As an employee of the PC world, I thought of sharing this good news to everyone...

As stated above, If you have any electrical equipment thats not in use and you want to recycle it, you can go to any PC World store and drop them on Their Customer Service Desk,

They will recycle it for free, to qualify you dont need to purchase anything and don't have to be their customer.

Aaargfh perfectly good electrical items going to waste, be even kinder to the enviroment and freecycle the things, someone will gladly take things off your hands that are useable, not just electricals either anything you have no use for but is useable, furniture, carpets, clothes, textiles, toys you name it we see it on freecycle and that old crt monitor may just make someones day.

have to agree with the freecycle comment, I have given away stuff on there before, it feels quite good, getting rid of your clutter and knowing someone else will get use out of it.
#6
wouldn't be surprised if pc world boxed it back up and resold it as new like they do there returns
#7
Most things can be sold on ebay as faulty and someone finds a use for them. Still worth knowing though.

i totally agree with this and i am interested to sign up however it says i need a yahoo email account (which i dont really want as i already have 2 other accounts) is there a way around this? Thanks for your anticipated help :thumbsup:

I quite like the idea of leaving an old washing machine dripping water on their customer service desk. On the side there will be a big note.

I'll leave what the note says to your imagination!:-D
#10

Sadly there is no way round it, just open a free yahoo account (takes just a couple of minutes) then once registered you can change the email address to your regular one its one of the bugbears of the system i'm afraid as they are yahoo groups based. Unless anyone else knows a way round that I dont, if you do let me know as I'm a moderator on ours and we dont know a way around it!

Hay I ma member of freecycle and its quiet handy and feel proud service :)

another vote for Freecycle here.

Recycling is brilliant, but please remember If you're recycling old phones, PDAs, Computer equipment, etc make sure that you have wiped all the data from them first (and in most cases that doesn't just mean selecting delete, but reformatting the hard disks and running programs to obliterate data) - identity theft is not funny and even things which may not seem important to you, could be the key to gaining access to your identity (and dosh) in the wrong hands!
#16
Cheers, I have just signed up for Freecycle, it sounds really good.
#17
Excellent! my toaster has died and I have been looking for somewhere to take it to be recycled as the Council will only put it into landfill!
#18
Freecycle is one of the most annoying sites in the world.

I think it could be AMAZING. But they need to start from the beginning and have a proper website and non of the rubbish Yahoo background to it.
#19
Would PCWord/Curries take broken electricals?
#20
they are obliged to take things back they have sold under the wee directive, same goes for B&Q etc not sure what their policies are, some places will want proof of purchase before they;ll take it back (proof of liabilty I suppose).

Currys / Dixons / PC World have a contract with a recycling firm and I know that at very least they're fridges get tested and parts recycled, compressors stripped out and sold to companies etc.
#21
You'll be suprised what people will take off your hands on freecycle i gave away a vaccuum on their that was faulty, i was going to take it to the tip but to my surprise i had about 5 people interested in it!:)
#22
they dispose it with WEEE(electrical waste disposal law) they cant recycle and it simply go for recycle in government approved way.

for dixons group, you dont need to buy the item to get recyled by them. for example if you have baught from commet or b&q you can still recycle it in pc world
#25

You are so right.

If ebay were run by Freecycle, it would be bankrupt in a day.

Rarely any pics. Then only by tortuous links

Location by half a postcode - donor could be next door or six miles away here!

Hassle of logging in, getting to listings, getting to newest ones to find item gone.

Moderators like harlzter should send Yahoo some feedback. Surrounded by ads, it would be the one decent business they have!
#27
Is this still possible?

Edit: Supposedly so on the Currys website: http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/editorial/weee

I work in a small pc shop and had a guy from the government come in today and tell us that it is in fact a government directive - if a shop sells a product then they have to offer a free recycle of the old product if the buyer asks for it.

Not dissing the validity of this deal but it's not any of these companies being generous.
