13.  WEEE Recycling Scheme

Clifton Cameras offers our customers a free “Take Back” scheme for their old electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).  This is done on a like-for-like basis, so if you buy a new camera from us (e.g) then you can return your old camera back to us (within 28 days) and we will recycle your returned EEE in accordance with the WEEE regulations.

Why recycle?
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.

Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.  If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

Our Take Back collection point is: Clifton Cameras Ltd, 28 Parsonage St, Dursley, Gloucesetershire, GL11 4AA

Your nearest collection point can be found by visiting the following website and entering your postcode:

Overseas customers are recommended to use their local recycling facilities, or to arrange delivery to our store as the following address: Clifton Cameras Ltd, 28 Parsonage St, Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 4AA

Under the Waste Battery Regulations, Clifton Cameras offer a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person (PLEASE DO NOT POST) situated at Clifton Cameras Ltd, 28 Parsonage St, Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 4AA
