2021 School Recycling Collections….are back

Free Collection Service

Schools, colleges, and training organisations located in Dublin and surrounding areas now have the opportunity to recycle old and once valued electrical, electronic and pure metal equipment. If you need to declutter and create space recycling safely can really help.

Mixed WEEE – Stored for Recycling

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 a new product. Your recycling helps sustain our organization 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 school’s 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 the last 18 months, we worked with hundreds of schools, colleges, and training organizations all over Dublin and saw an overall increase in electrical equipment collected for recycling with a similar trend in 2021.

After a period away from work due to COVID-19 restrictions we are back collecting. We have again updated our health and safety policies and a small number of our team have returned to work to help operate our recycling collection services. We are now in a position to help your school safely recycle all types of electrical, electronic and pure metal equipment so do email us.
