It’s rubbish. But help is on the way.
We get it – no one wants to look at their partner’s old clutter. So more than half of us (54%) secretly bin our partners’ old belongings.
And among the things we’re hoarding or secretly dumping are small old electricals that can be recycled and put to good use again.
So when having a Little Spring Clean – together or not – let’s remember that anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled.
Get top tips on sorting and recycling electricals – from decluttering pro Nicola Lewis and personal money guru Paul Lewis.
And nearly 60% of us confess to being secret throwers, ditching our partner’s hoarded treasures – photos, shoes.
Even wedding suits.
– the sheer volume and value of electricals we secretly dump.
Cables, games consoles, laptops, tablets. And they could all be recycled.
