At Snellings and Gerald Giles, we treat environmental issues very seriously and ensure we adhere to the WEEE guidelines closely. When purchasing a new appliance from us, if you need us to remove your old appliance we will collect it and arrange for the unit to be recycled. The recycling service is completely free, we just make a nominal charge for transportation costs. If you would like further details please get in touch.

What can I recycle?
- Anything with a plug, battery, or cable can be recycled or reused! The materials from recycled electricals can be used in everything from children’s playgrounds to lifesaving equipment, while donated tech can help bridge the digital divide.
