E-waste and chemicals

Recycle your e-waste and household chemicals responsibly

E-waste such as TVs and computers contain valuable non-renewable resources. These resources, including gold, steel and copper, can be recovered and recycled into new products.

Recycling your unwanted electronics helps reduce the need to mine raw materials for new technology. The e-waste we collect is diverted from landfill and around 95% of raw materials recovered are recycled.

Hazardous household chemicals could cause harm to human health and the environment if they’re not disposed of correctly. Different recycling and disposal methods are needed for these special types of waste.
