Frequently Asked Questions

No, not at all. Electrical appliances and equipment are either separated into materials to be reused in several different recycling processes or are destroyed in some way depending on the material. For example screen glass does not need to be intact as it will be separated out into a stream of glass which is crushed during the recycling process.

White Goods are a term used to refer to appliances such as fridges, washing machines, or freezers. Bywaters’ WEEE services will always prioritise reusing these items if possible, to save new appliances from being made unnecessarily. However, broken appliances will be broken down into component parts and recycled.

We always work with our clients to find solutions for any waste requirement, but usually the largest items we collect in the WEEE stream are fridges and washing machines.

If you need to dispose of larger items, then please contact us and we will work out a waste solution that works for you.
