Recycling Electrical Equipment

From July 1 2007 the UK’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that we pay for the recycling of electrical goods (previously this cost was met by local councils, or items were not recycled). So that you can get your waste electrical goods recycled we have contributed towards a fund which assists local councils to develop their waste electronic collection facilities. You will know which goods are electronic because they will have the crossed-out wheelie-bin symbol on the packaging.

Not all council sites are able to collect all types of waste electronic goods. To find your nearest site which can, please visit and put in your postcode. You can also find lots of advice on reducing waste and recycling all sorts of goods on this site.

Electronic waste is one of the fastest-growing types of waste in the UK. Much of it can be recycled and the recovered elements can be used to make new consumer goods. Please help us to minimise the effect we have on the environment by recycling your waste electrical goods.
