Waste Electronics

Is it WEEE?

If you have any old electrical items in your garage, or around your home that are broken or no longer used, Clarity can help.

We know that a lot of people are unsure of the correct way to dispose of their old electrical items, and some feel that their product should not go to waste as it is still functioning, even though they don't have a use for it anymore.

What can be recycled?

Does it have the crossed-out wheelie bin logo on it?
Does it have a plug?
Does it use batteries?
Does it need charging?

If you can answer 'yes' to any of the these then it is WEEE.

Examples of WEEE household items include:

Mobile phones, washing machines, calculators, TVs, hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, fridges, kettles, toasters, power tools, printers, ipods, and many more.

Why recycle your WEEE?

In the UK, we produce over a million tonnes of WEEE each year, which is the fastest growing type of waste in Europe. Recycling, either by reusing the equipment or recovering its base materials helps to save the environment by diverting it from landfill, where it can release toxins that pollute the environment.

Why recycle with Clarity?

When we recycle WEEE we are collecting reusable resources. The good news is that your old working electrical items don't have to go to waste, because Clarity works with charities to refurbish and re-use items in good working condition.

Items that are broken or unusable are sent to a local recycling plant that converts the waste back to raw materials for reuse and, very importantly, enables us to separate hazardous substances for safe recycling.
