Never bin your old electricals. And don’t put them in your general recycling bin. Everything with a plug, battery or cable must be recycled separately. Enter your postcode here to find all your local battery and electrical recycling points.The UK Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 aim to reduce the environmental impact of electrical and electronic waste on the environment, as well as increase the frequency of it being reused, recovered or recycled, instead of ending up in landfill. Electrical equipment that ends up in landfill can lead to hazardous substances leaking out, causing soil and water contamination, which can harm both human health and wildlife.
