2.3¬†¬† In the event that the Consumer requires a delivery on a day or time outside of EMWC normal delivery hours (Monday to Friday, 0830 ‚Äď 1800), EMWC reserves the right to make an additional charge that will reflect the actual charge being raised by the agent making the delivery and shall advise the Consumer of any such additional charge when the order is confirmed.

2.5       Where delivery of goods has been agreed with the consumer for a specific date and the delivery is alleged to have not taken place, the onus of notification of non delivery lies with the consumer. Non delivery needs to be advised to EMWC within 10 working days of the agreed delivery date. EMWC cannot be responsible for loss of goods, alleged or otherwise, where the non delivery advice timescale has not been observed. As tracking information is supplied by a third party (courier company) EMWC cannot be held responsible for its accuracy in cases of non delivery or incorrect delivery.

4   RETURNS and REFUNDS policy

4.1   Cancellation prior to despatch.

The Consumer may cancel their order at any point prior to dispatch. This must be done via telephone in the first instance and followed up by email, as there can be no guarantee that the email will be read in time to stop the order being processed. If only an email notification is received, no guarantee can be given that the order has been cancelled prior to despatch and charges will still be incurred. In these circumstances, the customer is responsible for returning the product(s) at their own cost.

We charge a 5% cancellation fee on the total value of the order being cancelled. Refunds will be made in 14 business days.

Deposits paid for show orders, whether partial or in full, will attract a 5% cancellation fee. 

4.2¬†¬†¬†¬†Cancellation after receipt of Goods ‚Äď 14 day cooling off period ‚Äď ordered via the EMWC website and/or via the telephone.

The Goods must have been ordered via the EMWC website and/or via the telephone with the assistance of an EMWC operative. The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations will apply.

  • The Consumer¬†must¬†tell EMWC that they no longer require their Goods, within 14 days of delivery, via email to¬†returns@eastmidlandswater.com¬†or in writing using recorded delivery.¬†No other form of communication for returns can be accepted. The reason why we insist on an email notification is so that the date of request for the refund is clear.

4.2.1 Consumers will be issued with a Returns Code and detailed instructions as to how to return the goods. We aim to provide a returns code within 3 working days of request.

Return codes are valid for 14 days only.

4.2.2 Failure to use a specific EMWC Returns Code issued for the sole purpose of the return of specific goods may result in the goods being refused. We will be unable to issue a refund in these circumstances.

4.2.3 Failure to return the goods within the specified time will result in the goods being refused and returned to the sender. We will be unable to issue a refund in these circumstances.

4.2.4 Return codes are issued for specific items only and cannot be used for a non authorised return or any other purpose. If additional goods are returned that do not have authorisation, the items will remain the property of the consumer and the onus will be on the consumer to retrieve the items(s) from EMWC.

4.2.5 Unauthorised returns are not eligible for a refund in any circumstances. After a period of 30 days EMWC reserve the right to dispose of unauthorised returns with no further communication with the owner of the goods.

4.2.6 The Goods being returned must not have been installed or used in any way.

4.2.7 Consumers exercising their right to cancel after the Goods have been delivered, will be responsible for returning the Goods at their own cost and in a re-saleable condition. Returned Goods will only be accepted if they are returned in their original packaging, complete, unused and with all instruction manuals. Goods must be in a condition to be able to return to stores, as new, which includes free of odour. We reserve the right to check all goods being returned to ensure they are complete, even where customers advise that packaging is unopened. 

The Consumer has a statutory duty to take good care of the Goods during this 14 day cancellation period and to return the Goods to EMWC using a safe and reliable method.

4.2.8 Delivery charges to customers are not reflective of actual delivery charges that EMWC pay to couriers. As such, delivery charges are regarded as subsidised. EMWC reserve the right to retain any actual costs, (as opposed to the cost that the consumer has paid) incurred in delivering the Goods to the Consumer as part of the original delivery. This includes circumstances where the consumer has been given free delivery. The actual cost of delivery will be deducted from the refund amount. 

4.2.9 Consumers are responsible for obtaining proof of delivery, insurance during transit and proof of receipt of returned Goods with their courier company. EMWC can accept no liability for Goods received damaged on return or non-arrival of Goods.

4.3  Partial Returns. Where Goods are purchased as part of a promotional package and are retained by the Customer and subject to agreement with EMWC, EMWC reserve the right to re-charge the items at normal retail price.

4.3.1 Where Goods have been purchased as part of a special offer (where an item or items have been part of a discounted package) if a customer opts to return part of the discounted package, the refund due on the returned item will be the discounted price and not the full price. EMWC reserve the right to request all items of a discounted package to be returned in order to fulfil the refund. Where a customer fails to return all items, the charge for the retained items will be the retail price of the item plus an additional 10% Return fee. The total amount will be deducted from the refund due.

4.3.2 We charge a 10% Return Fee. This is 10% of the total value of the items that are being returned and represents our administration costs for checking items as being suitable to return to stock, regardless of whether items have been removed from packaging or not, reboxing charges, bank processing charges and our time.

4.4  We aim to process refunds within 14 business days. This is from the point at which the returned goods have been confirmed as returned to stock (after checking and repacking) which is not necessarily immediately on receipt of the goods. Courier confirmation of delivery is not the start date of our refund process. 

Holiday periods and short working weeks (Christmas, Easter, Bank Holidays) will be taken into account where a refund is due. Public holidays fall outside of the 14 day refund period due to staff annual leave. 

Returned Goods are subject to the Terms of Return being fulfilled, as detailed in Section 4 of these Terms and Conditions.

4.5  Refusal of Goods at point of delivery (for any reason).

Should items be refused at point of delivery, EMWC reserve the right to deduct all transportation costs from any refund that might be due. This includes the cost EMWC incurs from the refusal of goods and return to EMWC by the courier.

 4.6 Exemptions

There are circumstances where we are unable to accept a return/offer a refund.

4.6.1   Orders placed at a Trade Show or other face to face environments are not eligible for cancellation and/or refund, in any circumstances.

We will accept returned units to our premises in Leicester but only where the Returns procedure has been followed. Customers must have a Returns Code. Reception is open 10am - 4pm Monday to Friday.

The onus for cancelling any bank standing order payment remains with the owner of the bank account or their legal representative. In these circumstances, any payments made towards products or services will be held on account and can be used against future purchases. Refunds cannot be made against these payments when the option to take goods or services has been cancelled.


EMWC may offer customer loyalty schemes whereby incentives are given for the return of reusable items for recycling. Where these offers are current, all elements of the item must be returned in order to maximise the value of the loyalty offer.
