The company, which featured on Dragons’ Den back in 2012, is paying customers by the kilo for their unwanted bricks, and has become the first UK company to recycle the world famous toy.
What’s more, Zapper has promised to double the payout to charity for all trades in August that contain Lego.
The unique scheme, entitled ‘Liberate Your Lego’, allows parents to get rid of any unwanted Lego without holding a car boot or jumble sale, or going through longwinded online trade routes. All they need to do is weigh their Lego and stick it in a plastic bag, print off a free postage label from the Zapper site and send off their bricks in return for a cheque. They can also choose to donate this cash straight to charity.
Zapper is also offering customers the chance to drop off their parcels using CollectPlus – the UK’s largest independent store-based parcel delivery and returns service. Anyone wanting to recycle their Lego via CollectPlus can print off a label on the Zapper website, package up the pricks and drop the parcel off at their local CollectPlus store.
Zapper already offers cash in return for other unwanted items including DVDs, CDs, games, books, mobiles and electronic gadgets.
