Recycling electrical items

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment is usually abbreviated as WEEE.

WEEE is any broken or unwanted electric or electronic equipment.

Only a few electrical items that are no longer wanted are recycled into new products.

Recycling WEEE items in a responsible way is very important for the environment.

For every item you recycle, we are reducing the need to use raw materials. This helps us save energy and a lot of resources.

Did you know, recycling one toaster creates enough steel to make 25 new cans?

What can I do with my small WEEE items?

If you have unwanted or broken WEEE, you can bring it to our Recycling Centre.

We have dedicated drop-off bays for electronic equipment at our Recycling Centre.

Examples of small WEEE items

  • vacuum cleaners
  • toasters
  • irons
  • clocks
  • coffee machines

If your WEEE is still in good working order you can donate it to a local charity shop.

What can I do with my larger WEEE items?

If you can't bring larger items to our Recycling Centre, we have a bulky waste collections service.

Our bulky waste team collects

  • fridges and freezers
  • washing machines
  • tumble dryers
  • and other large items.

Large WEEE items are broken down and the different materials they are made up of are sorted and recycled.
