The defect must be evident in the product and not caused by misuse, or damage by use in circumstances beyond our control, for example severe wind, storms, summer items left out in winter or any situation where goods are not being used for their intended purpose
- If the goods are found to be defective after 6 months, the customer must offer proof the goods were defective when delivered and the fault is not caused by their own actions or natural wear and tear. For example, items made from steel will, during normal use, show signs of surface rust as the elements wear down the powder coating. This is natural wear & tear. If we offer an extended warranty on the product, the extended warranty will take priority over this clause.
- If the goods are not wanted, they can be returned, at the customers cost, within 14 days as long as they have not been used. Used goods are any goods that have had their packaging opened, partially assembled, or in any way tampered with on receipt. We will not accept any goods once they have been opened as this will constitute the item as used and as such will invalidate the right to return unwanted goods.

- The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment.
- Sefton Meadows Garden Centre do not currently offer a take back service, however we do encourage our customers to responsibly dispose of any electrical waste at a local recycling centre or for further details contact your local authority for recycling advise.
What is WEEE?
- New government regulations called The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations encourages people to arrange collection or recycling of old electrical products, rather than throwing them away.
Why should waste electrical goods be recycled?
- Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. The amount of electrical waste, from hairdryers to washing machines, that is thrown away is increasing by around 5% each year. This means that in one year the amount of electrical waste created in the UK could fill Wembley Stadium 6 times! Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where 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.
- We appreciate our customers concerns about sourcing wood and timber from sustainable plantations. All of our wooden products have a full chain of custody certificate and are made from renewable sources.
- So, you can have peace of mind that your purchase does not impact the environment.
