WEEE Recycling FAQ

What Is WEEE?

The acronym WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE is a blanket term for electrical equipment that is no longer required or faulty beyond repair. It covers equipment powered by a plug or battery. It also includes components used to make electrical equipment.

There are currently ten categories of WEEE;

Large household appliances
Electrical and electronic tools
Toys, leisure and sports equipment
Medical devices
Monitoring and control equipment
Automatic dispensers
Small household appliances
IT and telecommunications equipment
Consumer equipment
Lighting equipment

What is the WEEE Symbol?

weee symbol/logo
The crossed-out wheelie bin logo appears on any electrical or electronic equipment produced after 13th August 2005. The logo identifies the product as WEEE, so it cannot go into a general waste bin. Instead, you should use a licensed waste management company or household waste recycling site.

Can I throw electrical waste in the bin?

No! Electrical equipment may contain hazardous substances that can pollute the environment or fire risk. You should recycle all electrical waste.

How can I recycle electrical waste from my home?

Most household waste recycling centres have a WEEE bin/skip, and some councils even offer a bulk WEEE collection for residents. From here, they will be sent to a recycling plant to recover the parts/materials they contain.

If your old electrical equipment works, you could list it on Freecycle to give it a new home.

Unfortunately, we do not collect waste from domestic customers. However, the following recycling locator can help you locate your nearest waste site. Enter your postcode and your local recycling location will be displayed.

Thanks to our friends at WRAP/Recycle Now for allowing the use of the recycling locator tool on our site.
