Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Small Electical Appliances

If the item is still in working order you could give it to a friend, sell it online or trade it in at a second hand store, or give it away using Freeuse Leicestershire.

If the item is broken beyond repair you can take it to one of the Recycling & Household Waste Sites (tips) where dedicated bins for electrical items are available.

Alternatively, just as some retailers collect your old appliances for recycling, a number of them will also accept your old small electical items for recycling when you buy new ones.


There are several recycling and disposal options for computers but you must always take care to erase any personal data from them. The consumer organisation Which has put together a very helpful guide to recycling your computer safely.
