WEEE Ireland organises and promotes public collection events of waste electrical and electronic equipment (weee) and waste batteries. Any household item with a plug or battery will be accepted at these collection events – from large items such as fridges, dishwashers and tumble-dryers, to small household items such as remote controls, electric toothbrushes and everything in between. All waste batteries will be accepted free of charge, including AA and AAA batteries, torch batteries, watch batteries, car batteries and electric fence batteries. Local authority civic amenity sites will also accept your household WEEE and all batteries free of charge.
WEEE Ireland has collected over 6,400 Tonnes of electrical equipment from special events since 2007 – almost the same weight as the Eiffel Tower!!
These days are promoted through local schools, local press and radio and again it’s free for the general public to bring any batteries or household item with a plug or a battery for recycling. They’re a great chance for you to finally clean out the garage or attic.
