Please be aware that the WEEE banks at our bring sites are for small electrical items only like toaster, kettles, hair driers etc. Please do not leave large items such as TV’s electric heaters, hoovers etc on the floor around the bank. This is fly tipping which is an offence, please take these items directly to a household waste and recycling site
Waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling
The following are examples of the types of small Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) we can collect for recycling.
- remote controls
- electronic toys
- hair dryers
Please be aware these can now be recycled through your household collections. Please place your small electrical item(s) into a carrier bag and leave next to your wheelie bin on collection day. Items must be small WEEE, any larger electronic items presented will not be taken.
alternatively, you can continue to take small WEEE to our recycling points which have small WEEE banks.
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), or click this link to 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.
Standard every day household batteries. Not larger specialist batteries such as car batteries etc.
Please place any standard household batteries in a carrier bag next to or on top of your green recycling bin, but not in it. Do not use black bin liner as these cannot be recycled.
alternatively, most supermarkets have battery recycling bins in their stores.
