Why recycle?
Recycling and reusing unwanted electrical or electronics can help save the planet and improve lives.

  • 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 the impact of reusing and recycling your electricals here Recycle Your Electricals campaign www.recycleyourelectricals.org.uk

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 will find the wheelie bin symbol on 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 will recycle your (UK residence) old electricals free of charge when you buy new ones. Together we can stop precious resources from being lost forever and help protect the planet. You are only responsible for the cost of returning the item(s) to us.
