We’ve compiled a list of resources on reusing,
repurposing and recycling e-waste.

Recycle Your Electricals Campaign
Material Focus is a not-for-profit organisation whose goal is to stop people in the UK throwing away or hoarding their old small electricals. It has launched the new UK-wide Recycle Your Electricals campaign. The campaign is revealing the value hidden in electricals and is making it easier for us all to recycle and reuse the small electricals we no longer need by providing more recycling points and providing practical information on how households can recycle.
The Restart Project
The Restart Project was born in 2013 out of our frustration with the throwaway, consumerist model of electronics that we’ve been sold, and the growing mountain of e-waste that it’s leaving behind. By bringing people together to share skills and gain the confidence to open up their stuff, we give people a hands-on way of making a difference, as well as a way to talk about the wider issue of what kind of products we want.
Recycle Now is the national recycling campaign for England, supported and funded by Government, managed by WRAP and used locally by over 90% of English authorities. We’re here to help people to recycle more things, more often.
BBC Give a laptop
Curated by the BBC, this list provides information on organisations across the UK who accept donations of laptops, computers, mobile phones and tablets and whether they can help with removing your data.
We are a grassroots network of repair social enterprises creating jobs, tackling climate change and reducing inequality. We work in strategic partnerships with local authorities and development trusts by invitation from local communities. All the wealth we generate stays within the community, creating both jobs and training opportunities through resilient social enterprise models. Repair creates 10 times as many jobs as recycling
Share and Repair
Share & Repair is a volunteer-led, community project in Bath and North East Somerset. We run monthly Repair Cafés across the county and host a Library of Things in Weston. Our aims are simple: to help local people help the environment and save money through reduce, repair and reuse.
