• New! Small electrical and textile recycling collection service
Recycle broken small electricals and unwanted textiles
Horsham District Council has collected over 9 tonnes of small electricals, textiles and batteries within just four weeks.
The free kerbside collection service of small electrical items, textiles and household batteries was launched by the Council in May 2021.
Broken kettles, toasters, irons, hairdryers, radios, electronic toys, power tools and many more small electricals if it fits in standard sized carrier bag. Most small electrical items that have a plug, battery or lead, are accepted but some restrictions apply.
Many of these items often stop working but could be repaired, they may be unwanted but have re-use value to others, so the Council is urging residents to consider re-use and repair options where possible and only use this service for broken items.
Batteries should be placed in a small, clear plastic bag (such as a sandwich bag or food bag) and the bag placed on top of either green-top rubbish bins or blue-top recycling bins on the usual collection day. They should not be placed inside recycling or rubbish bins.
