Do you have any old computers or electronics  catching

dust and taking up space?...Recycle it

Recycling your old unwanted electronics also known as 'waste electrical and electronic equipment' (WEEE) with an experienced WEEE Recycler is not only the safest way to dispose of your old electronics but it is also the most environmentally friendly option. Recycling uses less energy and creates less waste than making new products. Precious materials in your old electronics can be recycled into life-saving equipment, bicycles – and even new electronics.
 

We could save a whopping 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions if we recycled all our small unwanted electronics instead of binning or holding on to them. That’s like taking more than a million cars off the road. Help us to protect our Big Blue Planet! Check out the FAQs below for more info on our Free Friday Collection service

  • What does WEEE Mean?
    WEEE stands for ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’, which is practically any household or non-household end-of-life equipment that has a battery or plug. As technology develops and advances our electronic devices become outdated very quickly and are superseded by newer versions and the old ones were discarded and ended up in a landfill. However, this kind of waste in landfill sites not only takes up lots of space but also release harmful toxins into our water and air, causing massively negative effects on the environment. So in 2002, these environmental issues caused by electrical and electronic waste was addressed, and the WEEE Directive was introduced.
  • What types of Electronics (WEEE) do you collect?
    We collect all Category 3 WEEE - IT and Telecommunications equipment: Computers Printers Laptops Printers Computer Monitor Screens Copying equipment Electrical and electronic typewriters Games Consoles Phones (including Pay telephones, Cordless telephones & Mobiles) Answering systems Computer Accessories (mice, keyboards, USB Dongles, webcams...etc Laptop Accessories (docking stations, mice, USB dongles, webcams..etc) Any and all Cable Pocket and desk calculators and other products and equipment for the collection, storage, processing, presentation or communication of information by electronic means

  • What is a Duty of care Waste Transfer Note?
    A Duty of Care certificate or Waste Transfer Note is a legal document that is a requirement of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. It serves as proof that the owner of the WEEE (you) has disposed of their waste legally and responsibly. Once both parties (you and us) have signed the Waste Transfer Note this then transfers the responsibility of that waste to Advance Services, whereby we are obligated to recycle and/or ethically dispose of the equipment with minimum harm to the environment.
