ELECTRICAL WASTE COLLECTION
Wiser Recycling works in partnership with the Bradford Metropolitan District Council and WEEE Link to provide the Bradford community with a domestic electrical waste collection service. We will collect your unwanted domestic electrical items from the kerb outside your property. Once we have collected your unwanted domestic electrical items we will reuse, repair or recycle them at our specialist treatment facility in Huddersfield.
Please note that there is a charge of £6 per visit (£5 + VAT) for this service. It is your responsibility to remove personal data from your electronics before collection and we will only collect a maximum of two large appliances per visit to the property.
Large appliances include fridge freezers, washing machines and other white goods. You may put smaller electrical goods – such as microwaves or vacuum cleaners – with the larger items. It is important to note that we will not collect any commercial items or American style fridges. This is because our collection service is for household items only.
Examples of electrical items we can collect
|Small electrical appliances|
|Televisions and computer monitors|
|Defrosted and empty fridges and freezers|
|Washing machines and tumble driers|
|Cookers, hobs and microwaves|
Arrange an electrical waste collection
First, submit a booking request form to arrange a collection. Whilst you are completing your request, you will be asked to choose a collection date. Our system only provides dates for the next 30 days. If you would like to book further in the future, then you will need to come back nearer the time. Please note that there is a charge of £6 per visit (£5 + VAT) for this service.
When placing a booking, you will be asked what types of electrical items you would like for us to collect and where you will leave them on the day of collection.
Getting ready for your electrical waste collection
Ahead of your collection day, please remove any non-electrical waste from your items. This includes any packaging and food. We will not collect any items that are mixed with such wastes. Before 7 am on the day of your collection, please leave your clean items in a safe and secure place outside your property. For example, close to your wheelie bins or in some other place where our collection crew will be able to access safely.
Also, we cannot collect anything from inside of your property or where there are steps or stairs to climb. Please do not leave extra items for collection, as we will not remove any items that you do not include in your request.
We will not provide a refund if we attend the address and your items are not presented at all, presented in such a way that means we cannot safely collect them or your property is secured and we cannot gain access.
On your collection day
On your collection day, our friendly collection crew will arrive at your nominated address between 7 am – 5 pm. As we collect electrical waste from 25+ homes a day, we are unable to provide a specific collection time.
Nevertheless, we will try our best to collect your items before 5 pm on your collection day. In circumstances where we are unable to collect your electrical waste – for example, due to bad weather conditions – then we will attempt to collect your items the following working day.
