Small Electrical Appliance Recycling

On average, each person in the UK buys 3 new electrical items each year – that’s about 170 million items across the UK.

However, only a small number of the electrical items already in the home, whether they’re broken or just unwanted, end up being recycled.

Surprisingly, 75% of all materials in your old electricals can be recycled and turned into useful things like life-saving equipment, children’s playgrounds, and even new electricals.

Empty your cupboards and drawers of unwanted electrical items and recycle them!

We can collect unwanted small electrical appliances (e-waste) weekly on your kerbside collection day.

Please place these items in a clearly marked carrier bag, alongside your recycling boxes. 

*All electrical leads need to be contained inside the bag as well as all batteries removed – if it is not presented this way our collection team will not collect the electrical items.
