Electrical items should never be thrown in the rubbish bin, they contain hazardous and valuable materials and should be recycled properly.

Reuse: Staffordshire recycling centres have a reuse area where items in good condition can be donated. Charity shops accept a wide variety of items. Reuse networks such as Freecycle, Freegle and Ecobees allow members to advertise goods. There are a variety of online selling websites. Other options are advertising in the local paper, or noticeboards in a newsagents or some supermarkets.

Recycle: Small electrical and electronic items are accepted through some council collections. They also offer bulky waste collections for larger items. Check your local council for further information and charges. Small and large electrical and electronic items can be brought to any of Staffordshire's recycling centres.
