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
- 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.
