Electrical Waste Recycling
If your electrical product is gone beyond repair, please bring it to your nearest Recycling Centre. Both ERP and WEEE Ireland provide open days for the collection of WEEE. Don’t forget though, that if you are buying a new electrical product, the retailers are obliged to take the old one from you. Don’t be afraid to ask.
