Electrical waste is anything with a plug, battery, or cable that’s broken or simply no longer needed. This could be something as small as a torch to a speaker or fridge. We can help you get rid of any electrical waste in Bradford responsibly and affordably.

You can’t throw away Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in your household waste or recycling bins provided by Bradford Council. This is because they may contain hazardous elements, which can contaminate other waste and leach into the ground if they end up in landfill. We can collect and dispose of your WEEE in Bradford responsibly, diverting it away from landfill.

How electrical waste collection in Bradford works

Start with a free quote tailored to your needs, and then book electronic waste collection in Bradford. All we need to know are the electrical items you want collecting, where from, and when. We’ll book a time and date for collection and one of our purple vans with a couple of our professional team will come out on the day.

They’ll carry and load all your WEEE into the van, saving you the effort of moving large electronic appliances such as fridges, computers, and stereos. Then it’ll be taken to a nearby waste transfer station in Bradford. Everything is checked, sorted, and sent for donation, recycling, or responsible disposal – depending on the items and their condition.

Any electrical items that are recycled will be broken down with their hazardous elements and precious metals removed. The likes of gold and silver can be reused in new electronic items. Other materials – such as plastic casing, metal, and glass parts – will be separated and recycled alongside the same materials to ensure as much as possible is reused.

Local recycling centres in Bradford

Residents can take domestic electrical waste to one of eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Bradford. It’s free to dispose of household electronics but limits apply to the number of certain items you can get rid of every year, including:

  • Televisions – maximum of three per year
  • Computers – maximum of two per year
  • Large domestic appliances (eg: fridge) – maximum of two per year

You can dispose of as many small electrical appliances (such as kettles and toasters) as you want every year. Visitors need a resident permit or a van permit if using a van, pickup, or trailer. There are also various recycling banks for small electrical items across the Bradford district for household WEEE waste.

Commercial electronic waste can only be disposed of at two waste transfer stations in Bowling Back Lane and Keighley by licensed waste carriers – charges apply.

Donate old electronics in Bradford

Many charities in Braddford accept old electronic items, though most need to be in working condition (although some may take donations of broken ones). This reduces the energy needed for recycling, new materials to create fresh products, and helps a good cause. Plenty of charities offer free collections for electronic items too.

A few places where you can donate old electronics in Bradford include:

  • British Heart Foundation – offers a free collection service for old electronics that are then sold in the BHF furniture and electrical store in Bradford.
  • Keighley Furniture Project – collection is available for some electricals and white goods, which are reused, upcycled, and recycled in the Keighley and Skipton area.
  • RSPCA – free collection of certain electronic items and devices is available for the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District Branch. They’re resold in 10 shops across the region.
  • Sandale Community Trust – old electricals are accepted and sold in the shop to support the local community.
  • Scraptastic – send a photo of your old electrical item in advance to this scrap store in Shipley and they’ll let you know if it’s of use to them.
  • Freecycle and Freegle – list any old electronic items in any condition for other residents to have for free.
