You can now recycle your old Portable Air Conditioner with us.

If you’re buying a new portable air conditioner from Climachill, we will recycle your old one for free

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.

We can help

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

We can organise for our courier to collect your old portable air conditioner which will then be returned to us for recycling. The recycling is free but the courier cost in returning your old portable air conditioner to us is chargeable so please contact us with details of your old portable air conditioner so that we can quote you a courier charge (courier charges differ depending on the weight of our old portable air conditioner) but costs will be in the region of £24.00 (inc vat). For more information please email us at sales@climachill.co.uk

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.

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
