Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Re-Use facility

This facility is designed to reprocess and recondition electrical goods for recycling and resale into the community and aims to remove both large and small electrical items from the landfill stream.

White goods including: washing machines, fridges, freezers, dishwashers, cookers etc. are donated by commercial companies and householders. The facility also re-uses and recycles small electrical items including TVs, hoovers, lamps and kettles.

Any equipment that is repairable is repaired or refurbished by competent engineers. Any item beyond repair is stripped down, the good parts kept for re-use and the rest is recycled.

Once items are refurbished or repaired, they are sold through various local community groups and charities for much lower than the retail price.

The products are also available to people on low incomes or benefits - these people are referred to WEEE re-use via different agencies. All monies received for sold good is kept by WEEE Re-use to either improve the service provided or over time reduce the cost of appliances.

In both 2006 and 2008 the WEEE Re-use was the proud winner of the National Recycling Awards for the Best Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling Facility.
