What is WEEE ?

WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is anything that has a plug or a battery and is at the end of its useful life. In the house, old and broken fridges and washing machines are examples but don’t forget the little guys! Remote controls, batteries, electric toothbrushes, electrical tools, toys and even your old bicycle lamps can also be recycled! You would be surprised what items you have lying around the house that count as WEEE when they are no longer able to be used.
