Small electrical items

How to recycle small electrical items

Place your small electrical item(s) in a standard-sized carrier bag (no black bin liners) then place it next to your recycling or black waste bin by 7am on your collection day. Please don’t put the bagged items in your bins as they won’t be collected.

Please note there is no missed collection for electricals, batteries or textiles. If your collection is missed, just set it out for collection on the following week.

Red stickers will be placed on items which we are not able to collect as part of the service.
