Recycle with Clarity

Household WEEE recycling

Our network of partner sites offer recycling solutions for those looking to dispose of their unwanted or broken waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

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

Many people are unsure about how to dispose of their old electrical items. Clarity Environmental founded the Recycle with Clarity initiative in 2011 to help increase the amount of household WEEE that is recycled by offering convenient alternatives to civic amenity sites across the UK.

How it works

If you have old electrical items around your home, or in your garage, that are broken or you no longer use, Clarity can help. The good news is that your old working electrical items don't have to go to waste, because Recycle with Clarity works with charities to refurbish and re-use items in good working condition. All of our sites take items, and some offer collections.

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.

What can be recycled?

Mobile phones, washing machines, calculators, TVs, hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, fridges, kettles, toasters, power tools, printers, iPods, and many more. Our sites accept all WEEE, whether it is broken or still in full working order.

  • 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 answer 'yes' to any of the questions above then your item is WEEE.
