Recycling small waste electrical items and batteries
From 1 February, we are improving waste collection to enable you to recycle small household electrical items such as toasters, torches, or kettles. We will also be collecting household batteries.
To recycle small electrical items, place them in a carrier bag (no black sacks) and put them next to your waste or recycling bin on collection day. Please do not put these items in your bin.
We will collect any small electrical items that use batteries or plugs provided that they can fit into a standard sized carrier bag.
Further details of how to recycle large electrical items can be found on the Bulky Household Waste web page.
We cannot collect light bulbs, or fluorescent tubes
To recycle small household batteries, place them in small plastic bag, e.g. a sandwich bag, and leave them on top of your waste or recycling bin on collection day. Please do not put these items in your bin. We cannot collect car or large commercial batteries.
