Waste electronic and electrical equipment

Why recycle WEEE?

Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19), TRAID is not operating the home collection service for unwanted electric and electrical equipment and textiles, until further notice.

With technology constantly developing, electronic devices and appliances are some of our most wasted household items.

Waste electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) is full of hazardous materials. This form of waste is having a huge negative effect on the environment.
