Hampshire County Council has awarded its WEEE compliance contract to WeeeCare.
The company will collect, process and recycle electrical waste from 26 household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) across Hampshire.
It expects to deal with in excess of 7,500 tonnes of electrical waste. The sites will also sell some of the electrical waste for spare parts.
Councillor Mel Kendal, Hampshire’s executive member for environment said: “We went through a strict tendering process to find the most suitable partner to deal with the county’s electrical waste.
“We are pleased to be working with WeeeCare as their processes and commitment to responsible recycling match our own aspirations to ensure as much household waste as possible is recycled or reused.”
