If you have any small electrical items that you no longer use or are broken, you can now recycle them via your recycling box at home. If you do not have a recycling box at home you can use our collection points in Connections and Torquay Library. Please take your small electrical items and place in the metal recycling container which is clearly marked.
You can recycle:
- Mobile phones
- Remote controls
- Small radios
- Electronic toys
- Games consoles
- Small power tools i.e. drills
- Hairdryers, hair straightners and curlers
- Electric toothbrushes
- Hair trimmers and shavers
Some charities in Torbay also accept donations of unwanted electrical items - please see the Donate bulky and electrical items section on the bulky waste page. There are also a number of other places that will accept batteries for recycling.
