Responsible disposal of electronic waste in Harrogate is essential.

How electrical waste collection in Harrogate works

Provide a few details about the type and number of electrical items you need collecting in Harrogate, where from, and when for a free quote. If you’re happy with the fixed price we can book electrical waste collection in Harrogate at a time and date that suits your schedule.

One of our purple vans and a couple of our professional team will come to your property on the day. They move, carry, and load everything into the van – whether it’s a few bags of old phones or a broken dishwasher – to save you the stress. Then it’s driven to a waste transfer station in North Yorkshire.

Here the electricals are checked and sorted. Anything still in working condition may be donated to a local charity or cause in Harrogate. Everything else is sent for recycling or responsible disposal, which depends on its condition and material. Electronics sent for recycling first have their hazardous elements removed.

Any precious metals like gold and silver are extracted and used in the creation of new electronics. The other materials, such as plastic casing, metal wiring, and glass parts, are all removed, separated, and recycled alongside their relevant waste streams. This ensures as much as possible is reused and diverted away from landfill.
