If you purchase installation when you order, you’ll have your
old appliance disconnected for you.

SOME IMPORTANT NOTES
On some products, we offer the option to order an item in advance if it’s not in stock at the time, but we know that more stock is on its way and we will let you know the date we expect delivery to be available on the site. If you purchase two or more products at a time, they may have different availabilities and methods of delivery, in which case you may receive your items individually as soon as they become available.
Please be aware that we cannot offer VAT refunds to overseas customers ordering goods to be delivered. We do everything we can to ensure our delivery times are met but sometimes delays do occur with deliveries during peak ordering periods. We will let you know if we become aware of any unexpected delays.
Before we arrive, we would ask that you ensure that the old appliance is in a fit state to be taken away by us.
If you haven’t opted for an installation service but would like your old one taken away, no problem. Just make sure you’ve safely disconnected your old appliance before we arrive.

What we’d ask you to do...
LARGE APPLIANCES AND TVS OVER 39” DELIVERED BY KNOWHOW
If you are having your new product delivered, we just ask that you make sure your old appliance has been safely disconnected and in a fit state to take away before we arrive. If you’ve purchased a Knowhow installation service, we’ll disconnect your old product for you.
- Built-in /integrated appliances should be disconnected and completely removed from their housing and refrigeration appliances should be fully defrosted and free of water.
- Please note gas and dual fuel cookers should be disconnected by Gas Safe Register approved engineers.
We certainly do not want to damage your property during collection, so in some circumstances we are not able to disconnect old products. Below are some examples of why we would not be able to disconnect:
- your old appliance is hard wired into a fused spur
- your old appliance has tap connections that have seized up
- your old appliance cannot be moved
ALL OTHER PRODUCTS
Before bringing your unwanted electrical items into store for recycling, please make sure the item is in a presentable condition (i.e. refrigeration products fully defrosted) and if your product has any personal data (i.e. PC, Laptop, Mobile Phone, etc.) please ensure that has been deleted prior to us receiving it, as we will not carry out any data removal we will not carry out any data removal.
MORE ABOUT OUR RECYCLING SERVICE
Since July 2007 the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Regulations have applied. The regulations were introduced to
reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic
equipment (WEEE) going to landfill and to ensure that equipment
collected separately is dealt with properly.
All new electrical and electronic equipment we sell at Currys and PC World stores can be recycled. You can tell because our products include a ‘crossed out wheeled bin symbol’ like this:
Even if your old product doesn’t have the ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol, the good news is we’ll gladly accept and recycle your old electrical and electronic equipment to the best of our ability.
Benefits of recycling
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
