How to Prepare Your Scrap

Before dropping off or having us collect your electronic waste, please prepare your items correctly for safe and legal recycling.

Here’s how to prepare various types of e-waste:

  • Printer Toners and Batteries: Remove all printer toners and separate batteries from the devices to prevent contamination and aid recycling.
  • Air Conditioners: These must be degassed by a certified technician before collection or drop-off, in line with legal and environmental standards.
  • Lithium Batteries: Handle with care due to their reactive nature:
    • Use Anti-Static Bags: Store the batteries in anti-static bags to avoid electrical discharges.
    • Store Safely: Keep them in a cool, dry place away from heat or ignition sources to minimise fire risks.
    • Tape Off Connectors: Cover exposed connectors with tape to prevent shorts and other electrical hazards.
  • Engines and Gearboxes: Ensure all oil is removed before recycling.
