Small electrical items

We collect any type of small electrical items for recycling with your weekly green box collection.  We can accept any item the size of a toaster or smaller.  It doesn’t matter if it’s broken or not working, anything with a battery or a plug can be recycled including:

  • Kettles and toasters
  • Childrens toys
  • Lamps and torches
  • Hair dryers and hair straighteners
  • Laptops, tablets set top boxes and games consoles
  • Mobile phones
  • Cameras
  • Remote controls
  • Chargers, plugs and cables
  • Batteries of any type

The average household throws out 3 electrical items every year! It’s really important to recycle them all because they may contain hazardous materials which should not be put in the domestic refuse bins.

Larger electrical items such as microwaves, lawn mowers and white goods should be taken to your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre for recycling.
