Does your old electrical contain batteries or bulbs? Remove these before recycling. It’s your responsibility to remove personal data from smart devices and computers, so remember to take out memory cards and delete your data.
Repeat after me: “When I declutter my human lair I won’t bin anything with a plug, battery, or cable. I’ll bag it instead.”
Recycle them – and they could be reborn as playgrounds, bicycles, or life-saving equipment. We all deserve another chance.
By recycling your unwanted electricals you’re stopping precious materials going to waste, and curbing carbon emissions.
You are going on a journey.
You will feel a sudden, overwhelming urge to bag up your old electricals for recycling, recycling, recycling.
It’s as easy as ABC
Find a bag that you can use to store all your old electricals until you can go to the recycling centre – or until collection day, if you have one.
Check the easy recycling locator to find your nearest reuse, repair or recycling point. Some councils will also collect directly from your home. Otherwise keep your electricals in your bag until you’re ready to go.Recycling locator

You too can make sure your unwanted electricals are recycled and remanufactured into anything from playgrounds to life-saving equipment.
Ask yourself if another human could give them a good home.
