Small electrical items


Once your electricals have been recycled they could be used for things like shipbuilding, galvanising railings and lampposts, in jewellery or musical instruments.

How are electricals recycled?

After being collected, electricals are taken to a reprocessing plant where they are shredded into small pieces.

Using various processes, different types of metal and plastic are separated. Each individual type of material is then sent to help make something new.
