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. 

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.

Thunderbirds are Go!

As cult 1960s TV show Thunderbirds™ celebrates its 50th anniversary, we're proud to present a new range of Corgi Thunderbirds™ models based on the original classic series, for both long-standing enthusiasts and a new generation of fans.

The complete Corgi Thunderbirds™ range are - FAB1, Thunderbirds 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Thunderbird 1 is International Rescue's fast-action response vehicle, usually the first to arrive at an incident. Normally piloted by Scott Tracy, it can also be flown by his younger brother Alan.

Thunderbird 2 is International Rescue's heavy equipment transporter, and is also used as the transport vehicle for the smaller Thunderbird vehicles. The craft's main pilot is Virgil Tracy, who is sometimes accompanied by back-up crew members.

Thunderbird 3 is International Rescue's vehicle designed for space rescue and maintaining the systems and crew of Thunderbird 5. It is normally piloted by Alan Tracy, with his brother, Scott as co-pilot.

Thunderbird 4 is International Rescue's main vehicle for underwater rescues. The yellow mini-submarine, usually delivered to the danger zone by Thunderbird 2, is piloted by Gordon Tracy.

FAB 1 was the pink, customised six-wheel Rolls Royce owned by International Rescue agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, and driven by her trusty chauffeur Parker, and is packed with gadgets installed by Brains.

These models are sure to sell out fast, so get yours now.
