How to recycle small electrical items

We collect small electrical items as part of our recycling collections.

Simply leave your unwanted or broken electrical items next to your green lidded or black bin on collection day.

  • Make sure your item is smaller than 30cm x 40cm so it will fit in the cage on the vehicle
  • Remove batteries but leave cables and plugs attached
  • There is no need to put items inside a plastic bag

Visit Glossopdale Furniture Project if your item still works and could be reused by someone else.
