It’s easy to recycle your electrical goods.
Don't throw things like kettles, toasters, hairdryers, cameras, mobile phones away or leave them to gather dust in the back of the cupboard.
Simply take them to the Household Reuse and Recycling Centre or one of our on street electrical recycling banks where they can be safely recycled.
They can be recycled if they have a power cable, need charging or use replacement batteries. From toasters to digital watches, they can all be recycled. Visit the Recycle now website more information about recycling electricals.
We all know about repairing our washing machine or television. However, Islington has its own repair and reuse shop, Bright Sparks that repairs and reuses small electrical items. Even if you don't want the item back they can repair it and pop it in their shop for someone else to buy.
Until the end of February 2013 residents can have their electrical items collected from their property for recycling free of charge. To book a collection call 0800 085 1050, or for more information visit www.123recycleforfree.com.
A few retailers take back your old electrical items in store when you purchase a new item from them. However, not all shops do this.
