This is a free service. All your small electrical items we collect will be processed for recycling by our partner organisation, SWEEEP Kuusakoski, in Kent. Recycling your small electricals is important so precious resources can be reused rather than losing them forever and mining for more.

Small electricals cannot be put in your recycling bin and should not be put in your general waste bin.
