Please note: a permit system is in operation for household waste taken to Recycling Centres in a van, pick-up, car-towed trailer or sign written vehicle. However, you will not be allowed to dispose of waste that is connected to your sign written vehicle even if it is your own household waste e.g. electrical cables, sockets etc from a sign written vehicle advertising electrical services.
If you are hiring a van to transport your own household waste, temporary access can be arranged by calling the Customer Service Centre at least 48 hours before your planned visit.
If your electrical appliance is still in good working order, you could donate it to a furniture reuse group.
Alternatively, you could use a retailer take back scheme if you are purchasing a new appliance or contact your district council who can offer a chargeable bulky waste collection.
Some district councils also have recycling banks for small electrical appliances like hairdryers, kettles, toasters and power tools etc.
Please do not place small electrical appliances in your waste wheeled bin as they contain metals and/or components that could be recovered and reused. If these items are sent to landfill, these metals can result in contaminating the land.
