Public Collection Days

WEEE Ireland organises and promotes public collection events of WEEE and waste batteries in areas which do not have convenient access to civic amenity sites. Any household item with a plug or battery will be accepted at these collection events – from large items such as fridges, dishwashers and tumble dryers, to small household items such as remote controls, electric toothbrushes and everything in between. All waste batteries will be accepted free of charge, including AA and AAA batteries, torch batteries, watch batteries, car batteries and electric fence batteries.

It’s FREE for the general public to bring any batteries or household item with a plug or a battery for recycling. This is a great chance for you to finally clean out the garage or attic.
