Gardening tools (Electrical)

What?

This is an electrical item [WEEE].

Where?

This should be brought to a WEEE dropoff recycling point or Civic Amenity Site, check the waste services locator on this site.

Why?

When you recycle anything with a plug or a battery you are helping to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Electrical items generally contain hazardous components and therefore need to be disposed of correctly. By recycling you are also helping to conserve natural resources such as plastics, glass and metals as they are recovered for use again in industry.

General Comment / Tip

It’s easy to check if an electrical item, toy or game is recyclable if it reached the end of its working life. Simply ask the following questions and if the answer is yes, to any of these, it is recyclable: Does it have a plug? Does it use batteries? Does it need charging? Does it have a picture of a crossed out wheelie bin on it?
