Did you know that the average UK person throws away 3.3 tonnes of waste electricals in their lifetime?

As the UKs leading electrical retailers, we want to ensure all our customers have every possibility to responsible recycle their old appliances and tech when the time comes. That’s why we offer convenient ways to get your old stuff removed and recycled, either when we deliver your new appliance or for free in store. We collected over 67,000 tonnes of WEEE last year, ensuring it was all safely refurbished or recycled and ultimately avoiding landfill.

To drive more awareness of household recycling, this year Currys PC World is an official partner of Recycle Week (25th September-1st October), which has been run by WRAP for the last 14 years. This year’s theme is ‘Recycle, it’s worth it!’ and to promote this message and encourage more people to recycling unwanted electronics, we are running an exciting competition during the week for the chance of winning £250 worth of Currys PC World vouchers. To enter all you have to do is:


Take any unwanted electrical item/s into your nearest Currys PC World store.


Using the hashtags #selfiEEE upload a picture of you dropping off the electrical item/s to our Facebook or Twitter page


All entries must be uploaded between the 25th September – 1st October.


A winner will be selected at random from the uploaded entries.
