Our office is littered with electrical items and we realised that everyone who works here has over 30 things at home too. As you’re reading this you have access to at least one item too! Let’s be clear though – an electrical item is anything with a plug, a battery or a charger.
As rubbish goes, electrical items are the fastest growing waste stream in the UK with over 1 million tonnes of it thrown away each year.
But it doesn’t have to be that way, our electrical section contains a few helpful hints to save you money and to keep your electrical items out the bin.
To help you declutter your home from small unwanted electrical waste, we have partnered with TRAID to launch a new home collection scheme to pick up both textiles & small electricals.
The scheme is free for all residents in Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hounslow, Hillingdon & Richmond upon Thames. Simply book a collection and place your electricals & textiles in separate bags, ready to be collected on your chosen day.
Still a great option for some items and there are even places that can do it for you.
Some many products, so little time – dip in and out with gadgets and appliances when you buy them second-hand saving yourself loads of money in the process.
Host a waste electricals and electronic equipment (WEEE for short and for laughs) bring event to make sure they get recycled.
All electrical items can be recycled, find out where is close to you.
