 *Electrical items include anything with a plug or that takes batteries. This includes hairdryers, shavers, irons, toasters, smaller laptops, fairy lights, etc. Only domestic batteries are accepted, car batteries can be taken to a Household Waste Recyling Centre.

batteriesIt has come to our attention that there as been an increase in the number of batteries being placed in the brown bin. Please do not put any batteries in your brown bin, they contain hazardous material. Instead you can recycle batteries at local tips, supermarkets and anywhere that sells electrical goods. This includes all household dry cell batteries.

Please note: the automated recycling machines at the Tesco stores in Borehamwood and Potters Bar and the recycling banks at Sainsburys, Potters Bar are the responsibility of those supermarkets.
