WEEE that we accept:
- All types of electrical items
- Washing machines
- Fridges and freezers
- Computers, laptops and IT equipment
- CRT (cathode ray tubes) from computer monitors and televisions

What happens to your WEEE?
All of our WEEE items are sent to Sims Recycling Solutions for environmentally friendly and legislatively compliant recovery and recycling.
Sims Recycling Solutions uses dedicated processes to recycle more complex electrical and electronic equipment such as electrical items, IT equipment and hazardous electrical and electronic equipment. An example is the world’s largest fridge recycling plant in Newport, South Wales which is capable of handling 1 million fridges per year, de-polluting to standards greater than UK legislation.
