Small electrical recycling service

Small electrical items are collected weekly with your food waste (along with textiles) - 3 services in 1. To find out when your collection day is type your postcode into My Spelthorne.

Put your unwanted items eg toaster, kettle, hairdryer into a clear plastic or carrier bag (ideally labelled to show they contain electricals) and leave them by your food waste bin on your collection day. Please remove batteries and bulbs but leave any plugs or cables attached. The items will be recycled so they do not need to be in working order. Clear plastic sacks are available from the Council Offices or Community Centres free of charge - up to ten bags at a time.

The items you can include are:

This service is available to most but not all households. If a collection date is not listed for you on My Spelthorne, it means you do not currently receive this service. However, you can take small electrical items to a recycling bank or to charity shops if in good working order. Please don't throw them away.
