If you have a household electrical item that is in good condition, it could be sold or donated for reuse or to charity. If the item is not reusable, it can be taken to one of north London's reuse and recycling centres (RRC) (opens in a new window) or if it is smaller than 520mm x 510mm you can place it in one of the small Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) banks (opens in a new window) around north London.
If the item is not reusable, there are lots of ways to recycle it, some boroughs offer a free collection through Clearabee - visit our page about recycling electrical items (opens in a new window) check with your council.
