Coronavirus (COVID-19) Collections.
Residents Recycling Collections are back but have been temporarily modified as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
WEEE Ireland are telling us the average household has 193 electrical appliances and 110 batteries. Some of these items are very old, damaged or unused and could be safely recycled!
This summer Recycle IT want to encourage householders, families, and friends to act and recycle any old, unwanted or unused electrical stuff from around the house. This includes kettles, cookers, TV’s, washing machines, games consoles, batteries, phones, computers, metals, and electronic toys; the list really is endless.
To support with recycling Recycle IT offer free resident association collections in many areas of Dublin. Our teams can collect all waste electrical, electronic and pure metal items from residents. We can collect Monday to Friday each week and once a residents group booked in advance.
Recycle IT work in partnership with Residents Groups across Dublin to offer these types of collections so ask your residents group to connect with us!
Presenting your recycling for collection
Once local residents know a collection is scheduled they can assemble old electrical, electronic and metal equipment and have it ready and out for collection by 9am on collection day.
All waste needs to be securely contained and placed at the front of house within reach of the pavement (e.g., in your drive) but not on the pavement so as to block access. Your electrical waste should not be placed in refuse sacks or covered. Please ensure that waste items are easily accessible. If items are hidden behind a locked gate or a parked car, we may not be able to see or collect your items. Our teams will accept electrical and metal waste at no cost once used in your home or small office.

In the case of unforeseen circumstances such as poor weather conditions, vehicle breakdowns, roadworks or other incidents, we may be delayed, but we will do our best to keep groups updated and we will work to catch up throughout the day. At present we are not entering homes. This help maintain the safety of residents and our staff teams.
These authorised WEEE collections are offer in association with Residents’ Associations. Each group helps by providing details on numbers of homes in the area, names of roads, and promotion of the event to householders through social media, email, leaflets newsletter etc. Recycle IT can provide further information on request.
Please note, at present our residents collections are provided free of charge to householders in South Dublin, Dublin City and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
