Battery, Electrical and Electronic Recycling for Schools, Colleges…
As the days get longer and blue skies appear Dublin schools, colleges and training organisations have the opportunity to recycle old and once valued electrical, electronic and pure metal equipment. The service is offered free and is dedicated to reducing large amounts of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) which accumulates in classrooms, canteens, stores and labs over time.
Recycle IT, is a community based social enterprise, offering a simple and efficient route to recycle disused electrical and electronic items. After collection, items are broken down and recovered materials are processed for use in the manufacture of new product. Your recycling helps sustain our organisation and create employment and training opportunities.
The free collection service helps safely divert e-waste from landfill and makes use of old items that may have been thrown away. The types of items usually collected include computers, kitchen equipment, phone systems, mobile phones, laptops, tablets, monitors, projectors, printers, battery-operated toys, televisions and radios.

Schools, Community and Fundraising
Our schools collection service is organised as part of our free community collection service. We also support WEEE Ireland with collections of batteries from schools around Dublin which in turn supports the work of LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
During 2018 we worked with hundreds schools, colleges and training organisations all over Dublin and saw an overall increase in electrical equipment collected for recycling with a similar trend in 2017.
We encourage students, parents and teachers to get involved by taking in once loved electrical items from home (WEEE to School Day). We promote these type of initiatives to increase awareness of electrical recycling and encourage the next generation to recycle as a norm. Recycling electrical equipment might also help your school achieve or maintain your valued Green Flag
