WEEE Information

Why Recycle? 

When you recycle "anything with a plug or a battery", you are helping to

  • Reduce the amount of battery and e-waste going to landfill
  • Recover raw materials recovered from waste appliances to go for recycling and re-use
  • Conserve natural resources as materials such as plastics, glass and metals ensuring these are recovered for use again by manufacturers

Every battery you recycle in the blue WEEE Ireland battery boxes helps raise vital funds for Laura Lynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice

The future is in your hands...
“Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is taken back free of charge on a one-for one, like-for-like basis. Waste batteries including rechargeable batteries are taken back free of charge. You are not obliged to make any purchase when returning old batteries. Each local authority must also accept household WEEE and small batteries free of charge at its recycling facilities. All WEEE and waste batteries must be recycled and should not be placed in any of your household wheelie bins. Make sure you always recycle all your old electrical goods and batteries.”
