Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) - Domestic

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK! WEEE can be classified as any item which uses a battery or has a plug; e.g. a battery-operated MP3 player and a plug-in hairdryer would both be considered types of small WEEE.

It is now possible for Dundee householders to recycle waste electrical/electronic items at Dundee City Council Recycling Centre. Separate containers have been provided for the following five categories of WEEE:

  1. Large Electrical Appliances (such as washing machines, dishwashers, cookers, microwaves and tumble dryers)
  2. Small Electrical Appliances (such as irons, hairdryers, tools, video games, IT
    and telephone equipment)
  3. Fridges & Freezers
  4. Fluorescent Tubes
  5. Televisions and Monitors (including computer monitors and screens)

WEEE that is collected at Household Waste Recycling Centres will be processed for recycling/reuse and any hazardous components will be disposed of safely.
