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.
Once you’ve decided to pass on or recycle your electricals, preparing them is simple.
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.
Protecting health and the environment and putting valuable resources back into the economy.
Discarded electricals are one of the fastest growing sources of waste – and a big threat to the environment and human health.
Recycling old electricals is better for the planet and your pocket. It means more jobs and saving precious resources.
From your home to your recycling centre to brand new products – the precious materials in old electricals get a new lease of life.
Toasters, kettles, cookers, games consoles, computers, cars …
All these items and more use steel. And the great news is that steel is 100% recyclable – it can be melted down and turned into new objects made of steel without losing any of the original metal. It can also be recycled over and over without weakening.
