Household Waste

Household Waste

As we cannot normally collect WEEE from households free-of-charge, we partner with local authorities to accept most electrical waste items along with your regular kerbside recycling. Please follow the links below to learn more about kerbside electrical recycling in your area. You can also bring waste to our operating centre in Wellington during business hours.

Kerbside Collections

Are you looking to introduce kerbside small electrical recycling in your district? Please call or email for more information.

Bring your waste to us

Our Wellington operating centre is a registered Designated Collection Facility. You can drop most household electrical waste (in any condition) at our site for recycling free of charge. We treat household waste with the same care as commercial waste – you can trust that any data will be destroyed to a high standard and your electronics will be recycled in the most sustainable way possible.

Always check with your local authority which items are eligible for collection – usually only small appliances (ie fit in a carrier bag) can be left at the kerbside.
