Small electrical appliance recycling
Small electrical appliance recycling is collected weekly on your normal collection day.
Any appliance, powered by batteries or with a plug can be put out for collection in a clearly marked carrier bag. Please ensure electrical leads are contained inside the bag.
The collection crew will not collect an appliance if it is not presented in a carrier bag (including cable).

- Baby monitors
- Cassette players

What happens to the collected appliances?
Once collected, the appliances are sent to a re-processing site where metals are recovered and sent for further refining. Waste plastics are often shredded and incinerated for energy.
You can take your recycling and household / garden waste free of charge to Space Waye Reuse and Recycling Centre. If Space Waye is closed, there are alternative re-use and recycling sites available in West London.
