Kerbside electrical recycling to start in Bath
Small electrical items such as kettles and hair dryers can be put out for recycling at the kerbside in Bath from later this month.
Bath and North East Somerset Council is expanding its collection service from February 18.
Items must be able to fit in an average plastic carrier bag and will be collected as part of the authority’s weekly green box recycling collection service.
Cabinet member for neighbourhoods Councillor David Dixon (Lib Dem, Oldfield), said it was important to make recycling convenient to boost recycling levels, and pointed out that 537 tonnes of small electrical goods were taken to the council’s waste centres last year.

“But we still find lots get thrown away. It is a waste to throw these away because they can be recycled and made into new things using their valuable metals and plastics.”
Suitable items for collection include kettles, blenders, calculators, cameras, chargers, digiboxes, electronic toothbrushes, electronic toys and games, hair straighteners, hi-fi equipment, irons, power tools, shavers, telephones, and torches. TVs, microwaves, PCs and washing machines are too big.
