Homes and businesses create all sorts of electronic waste in Leeds. It could be something major like your fridge has stopped working or something as small as a broken battery-powered handheld torch. Whatever electrical waste you’ve got, you can’t throw it away with your general household waste.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is anything with a plug or a battery. At Divert, we can collect a wide range of WEEE from homes and businesses across Leeds, whether it’s a single item or a variety of old electronics.

Some WEEE contains hazardous elements, so responsible disposal that avoids it ending up in landfill and harming the local Leeds environment is vital. We divert all electronic waste in Leeds away from landfill, ensuring as much as possible is recycled and everything is disposed of responsibly.

How electrical waste collection in Leeds works

Simply let us know the types of electronic items you need collecting, how many, where from, and when. We’ll provide a free no obligation quote. If you’re happy with the price we’ll book electrical waste collection in Leeds at a time and date that suits your schedule.

One of our purple vans or trucks with one or two of our team will come out on the day, depending on the size and number of WEEE items. They’ll lift and load all your waste electrical items into the vehicle, so you don’t have to worry about carrying your old washing machine out. 

Your old electricals will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station in Leeds where they’re checked and sorted. Anything in good, working condition might be donated to a local charity for reuse. Any broken or damaged electricals will be recycled, with the exact process depending on the type of product.

Normally the electronic items are broken down and any hazardous elements and precious metals are removed. Gold and silver may be reused in new electronic devices. The other materials are separated and recycled alongside similar materials, such as the plastic, metals, and glass contained in electrical items. It ensures as little as possible ends up in landfill.
