Social and Environmental Responsibility

At Novo we are committed to minimise our impact on the environment and ensure the safety of all those who work with us

You can now recycle your old electricals with us

If you’re buying a new electrical item, 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 when purchasing a new item from us.

Please contact us using our contact page for information on how to recycle your WEEE.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossedout 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 takeback scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a likeforlike basis.

Additionally, where store space allocated to electricals is over 400m2 distributors must offer free take back for all small electricals or they must support the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities.


We all have a responsibility to ensure that electronic products are properly disposed of at the end of their lives. Your Climair should be taken to a local collection point who can take responsible steps that protect the environment and human health when disposing of the item.
