Our NEW collection started 18 February 2013
Have you got any small electrical items that are broken or you no longer want? Find out below how you can start recycling them from home as part of our weekly green box recycling collection service or visit us as one of our electrical recycling road shows
It is a waste to throw these away because they can be recycled and made into new things using their valuable metals and plastics - one iron can provide enough steel to make 13 new steel cans.

- Further information
Any small electrical item that has a plug or uses batteries. These items must be able to fit in an average size plastic carrier bag. We cannot take anything larger in this collection.
Yes please - we can take small items including:
|Electrical personal care||
|DIY and garden electricals||
No thanks - no large items. We cannot take items that cannot fit inside an average sized plastic carrier bag.
*All these items can be recycled but are too big for this collection. Please take these to your local Recycling Centre instead, or book a larger items collection from the Council for a charge.
We may use different vehicles to pick up your electrical items so don’t worry if your usual recycling has been collected before or after your electricals.
- Please put your small electrical items in an untied carrier bag - don’t worry if these get wet.
- Place the bag next to your green recycling box on your usual weekly collection day by 7am. You can put out more than one carrier bag if necessary.
- Please remove any batteries first and put these in a small plastic bag at the top of your green box.
All electricals we collect will be crushed, separated into their different materials and recycled to make new products. Don’t forget to donate any working electricals in reusable condition to charity if possible.
