The small WEEE banks have been removed by East Sussex County Council. In response Rother District Council in partnership with Biffa have introduced a household small WEEE collection.

Waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling

Anything with a plug, battery or cable can be recycled through your household collections.

The following are examples of the types of small Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) we can collect for recycling.

  • Smartphones, smart watches and charging cables.
  • Kettles, toasters, blenders and other kitchen appliances.
  • Electric shavers, electric toothbrushes and hair dryers.
  • Computers, laptops, tablets and games consoles.
  • Small speakers and remote controls.
  • Vapes and elf bars (if battery can be removed please recycle separately as below)
  • Toys
  • Sports equipment

Please put your small electrical item(s) into a carrier bag and leave on top of your black or green bin on collection day. Items must be small WEEE, any larger electronic items presented will not be taken.

All other larger items of WEEE, for instance computers, television sets, cookers, washing machines, etc. can be either taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Sites (external link) free of charge, or click on the following link for our Bulky Household Waste Collections page. If you are replacing a household good you usually have the option of asking for your old product to be removed, usually at a cost.


This refers to standard every day household batteries, not larger specialist batteries such as car batteries etc.

Please place any standard household batteries in a carrier bag on top of your black or green bin, but not in it.

Alternatively, most supermarkets have battery recycling bins in their stores.

Do not use black bin liner as these cannot be recycled.

Further information is available on the Your East Sussex website.
