Waste Electrical Clearance (WEEE)

Most people use electronics on a daily basis and it’s vitally important that you know how to dispose of these items when they are no longer needed. Anything with an electric current running through it is considered to be hazardous. This includes mobile phones, computers, laptops, power tools, and so on.

We can collect your electrical items

Electrical waste items must be taken to a regulated WEEE hazardous waste disposal facility. Rather than doing this yourself, we can collect any unused electrical items from your London property and ensure that they are disposed of swiftly and safely.
