Odd items - What can I do with...?

It's pretty easy to recycle bottles and lids, but what about those tricky every day items that are hard to dispose of? Here's some guidance to help you keep our planet tidy...

Check your district to see if they accept small WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) at your kerbside. WEEE are also accepted at all of the council's Household Recycling Centres.

Larger retailers that sell electronic equipment are also required to take back ‘very small WEEE’ (less that 25cm on their longest side) regardless if you are buying something, and also they must offer to take back waste of the same item as you are buying from them (e.g. a washing machine if that is what you are purchasing).

You could also think about selling the item online if it is still working, or donating it to a reuse or charity shop that accepts electricals.
