Schools and businesses

Local authority recycling centres will not accept WEEE from schools or businesses. Schools or businesses should contact the producer of the equipment, if there is a crossed out wheelie bin symbol on it.

If old products are being replaced with new products, and the old products do not have a crossed out wheelie bin symbol on them, the producer of the new products can advise on recycling.
