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.”

2. Your old electricals can save lives

Recycle them – and they could be reborn as playgrounds, bicycles, or life-saving equipment. We all deserve another chance.

HypnoCat saying 'Human: Bag up your old electricals for recycling'

Look into my eyes


You are going on a journey.

You will feel a sudden, overwhelming urge to bag up your old electricals for recycling, recycling, recycling.

Not sure where to start?

HypnoCat has done the planning for you

It’s as easy as ABC


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.


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.

What electrical items can be recycled?

Anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled.

Are your old electricals still working?

Ask yourself if another human could give them a good home.
