Together WEEE can reduce waste & re-offending

Have you got a broken electrical item that you don’t want any more but just needs fixing? We are on a mission to give your broken electricals a new lease of life!

5kg per household of small electrical items are thrown away each year! Instead of recycling your small appliances, we are working with local prisons to give your broken Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) a new lease of life. 

Simply drop off your broken items in the electrical repair container at one of your local household waste and recycling centres or one of our selected libraries and we will send them item off to prisons to be repaired and PAT tested by trained prisoners. We will repair and sell it to raise money for charities and other great causes.

What can you drop off?

You can donate most of your small household appliances to the scheme that simply just need repairing. If it has a plug or needs a battery, we will take it!

Anything that you think is beyond repairing should go in the electrical recycling skip at one of Staffordshire’s Household Waste and Recycling Centres for recycling.

  • Kettles
  • Coffee machines
  • Clocks

  • Speakers 
  • Stereo
  • Toasters
  • Irons
