Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

The containers for electrical items are not currently being emptied or serviced by our third party contractor due to Coronavirus (Covid-19). Please store at home until these sites re-open.

I have some WEEE, how can I dispose of it?

You can recycle worn out small electrical equipment (upto a maximum size of 58cm wide x 21cm deep) in one of the collection banks installed around the borough.WEEE collection bank

This helps to stop people putting worn-out electrical items which plug in or use batteries into their grey bins, including:

  • kettles, toasters or kitchen appliances
  • hairdryers, straighteners or curling tongs
  • cameras or photographic equipment
  • music equipment , including radios and MP3 players
  • lamps, heaters or electric blankets
  • computers or games consoles
  • electrical toys, such as remote controlled cars
  • fairy lights
  • mobile phones.

These items are then sent to be processed with materials being recycled into new products.

To recycle larger electrical items, such as televisions or vacuum cleaners, you can take them to the local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) on Wade Road, Basingstoke.
