Learn more about Electronic Waste in London
The variety of options offered by borough councils in London for disposing of electronics is designed to encourage residents to recycle these items as much as possible, as electronic waste is made of components and materials that can either be reused or remanufactured into new products. For example, high grade plastic from outer casings can be processed into almost any other product that contains plastic and is suitable for a range of other uses even after being recycled several times, electrical recycling and the reuse of electronic waste has many environmental benefits..
Where it is not possible for residents to transport electrical appliances themselves, borough councils offer paid for electrical recycling collections that can be arranged by calling or visiting council websites and booking an electronic waste collection. For house clearances where several large and small electronics require collection, Wayst also provides electronic collection services through our specialist electronic waste partner providers that are flexible, convenient and guarantee that items are processed in the most environmentally sustainable way possible. We prioritise reuse and refurbishment of electronic waste to reintroduce items back into the circular economy and cut down on the environmental resources needed to reprocess raw materials however if not possible then we will ensure the correct processes are carried out for any kind of electrical recycling. We also build strong connections with waste transfer centres around the city to track items that are sent for reprocessing in relation to the Wayst standards for environmental commitment to check that our recycling targets are being met.
