Recycling and reusing unwanted electrical or electronics can help save the planet, boost the economy and improve lives. Not only that, electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) contains materials, parts and substances which can be dangerous to the environment and harmful to human health if not disposed of correctly. Electrical and electronic equipment is now the fastest growing waste stream in the UK and across the world. Discover more about the impact of reusing and recycling your electricals here.
What can I recycle?
Anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled or reused! The materials from recycled electricals can be used in everything from children’s playgrounds to lifesaving equipment, while donated tech can help bridge the digital divide. You’ll find a crossed out wheelie bin symbol all your electrical items. It is a reminder to recycle your old electricals, rather than binning them.
Reducing waste electricals
As part of our commitment to reducing the amount of unwanted electrical waste being incinerated or sent to landfill sites, we’ll recycle your old electricals free of charge when you buy new ones. Together we can stop precious resources from being lost forever, save lives and help protect the planet. Every year, we collect, reuse and recycle thousands of tonnes of old electrical and electronic equipment. We take all your old electricals to a recycling plant for processing and separate into individual materials, so they can be turned into new, more useful things. Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is regulated by the UK Government, find out more here.
