Any electrical items large or small can be recycled at a Recycling Centre.
Choose to reuse
Before you throw away your tech, it’s worth searching online for repair shops to see if it can be fixed.
If your electrical item is still working and in a reusable condition, your local reuse organisation may be able to refurbish or fix it – giving it a new lease of life and a new home.
