UK Recycling for broken Play:1

I have a Play:1 that was knocked over from a high stand and won’t power on correctly. The indicator light flashes from a dim grey, to white and back off again continuously. Resetting it by holding play/pause and plugging in the power doesn’t have any effect.


I am resigned to the fact that it is broken and the excess on my insurance is more than a replacement. From browsing the community, there is no repair service either in the UK or internationally. Therefore i’m trying to find where I could send it for recycling but I can seem to find a link anywhere. I take it that the ‘Trade Up’ offer won’t take broken units.


Can anyone help me out with the best course of action please?

Depending upon what level of “recycling” you’re looking for, your local council will operate a household waste and recycling centre. 

Yes, I’m aware I could recycle it this way. My hope was that Sonos might have an ecosystem for this sort of thing. It’s not looking good though.
