Recycling Waste Electronics

Recyclable toasterThere are lots of way to recycle Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which includes large electrical appliances, small electrical appliances, fridges and freezers, flourescent tubes and televisions/monitors.

You can donate older but still working equipment to some charity shops, although you should check first as some shops will not accept them as they require safety testing. Also make sure to check with any furniture reuse schemes and initiatives as they often accept electrical goods too.

If you are donating a computer, you can use our local recycling services search to find out if local charities or even private companies may be able to take your old equipment.
