Currys launches Cash for Trash tech recycling scheme

Currys has launched a recycling scheme called Cash for Trash that gives participants money for handing in old pieces of tech.

Customers are encouraged to bring in any old, broken or unused electronics to their nearest Currys store in exchange for a voucher worth at least £5.

Tech like TVs and small domestic appliances can also be traded in for new products.

Currys chief supply chain officer Lindsay Haselhurst says the scheme is all about making recycling “easy and rewarding.”

“We’re urging the nation to look in drawers, under the sofa and up in the loft – as these unused tech devices that have seen better days could be repaired, rehomed, or recycled into something new,” Haselhurst said.

“We really are accepting any tech, bought from anywhere, even if it’s broken – it might look like trash, but it isn’t to us.”

“You can be confident that your tech will be handled responsibly by the thousands of dedicated Currys colleagues who are experts in diagnosing and advising on the best outcome for unwanted and broken items – whether that’s repairing, refurbishing, or recycling.”

The Currys Cash for Trash scheme will run from March 16 to April 15.
