Batteries and WEEE recycling

 

 

Waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling

 

Yes Please!

The following are examples of the types of small Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) we can collect for recycling.

  • phones
  • remote controls
  • electronic toys
  • hair dryers
  • kettles
  • irons
  • radios

Please be aware these must now be recycled through your household collections (black or green bin) or alternatively by taking them directly to Pebsham or Mountfield tip. East Sussex County Council has removed the small WEEE banks from our Rother recycling sites

To recycle through your household collection please place your small electrical item(s) into a carrier bag and leave next to your (black or green) wheelie bin on collection day. Items must be small WEEE, any larger electronic items presented will not be taken.

All other larger items of WEEE, for instance computers, television sets, cookers, washing machines, etc can be either taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Sites (external link), or click this link to our Bulky Household Waste Collections page. If you are replacing a household good you usually have the option of asking for your old product to be removed, usually at a cost.

 

Batteries

Standard every day household batteries. Not larger specialist batteries such as car batteries etc.

Please place any standard household batteries in a carrier bag next to or on top of your green recycling bin, but not in it. Do not use black bin liner as these cannot be recycled.

Alternatively most supermarkets have battery recycling bins in their stores.
