What happens to electrical items

Electricals are sent for recycling so the critical rare metals they contain (gold, silver, palladium and copper) can be used again in new electronic devices.

It’s your responsibility to remove personal data from electronics. Please read the advice on how to do so from Information Commissioners Office.
