Waste Electrical Equipment

You are able to recycle both large electrical items such as televisions and smaller electrical items like hairdryers, kettles and electric toothbrushes.

A crossed out wheelie bin symbol is put on new electrical items to remind consumers that when they replace a household electrical item the old one can be recycled.

Electrical recycling

Electrical equipment can be taken to the Nuffield Household Waste Recycling Centre to be recycled.

Low-Energy Light Bulbs or Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) should not be a major hazard if handled correctly. However, they could cause a problem if disposed of in a waste bin because of small amounts of mercury they contain. Used bulbs can be taken back to the retailer if the owner is a member of The Distributer Takeback Scheme.

The Borough of Poole also provides a facility to dispose of low-energy light bulbs at the Nuffield Household Waste Recycling Centre.
