E-Waste cannot go into your kerbside system.

Electronic Waste (E-waste) is banned from direct disposal to landfill and must not be placed in any household bin as it can contain hazardous materials including heavy metals and glass which if broken or damaged pose an unacceptable environmental hazard.


Around 90% of the resources used to make electronic products can be recycled, saving valuable, finite resources.
