Anyone know of a facility where I can recycle power supplies, USB and telephone cables and assorted leads please? Thanks

There was a thread about this recently: link

Apparently there are electrical bins on the City of London housing estates, although I haven't seen them first hand and am not suggesting any non-residents should use them.
There's also an electrical bin over the river near Red Lion Square.

Alternatively you can do what my old flatmate did: just chuck everything and anything in the normal recycling and forget about it. But please don't

actually maybe I misunderstood that bit about City of London estates. I was thinking of the Corporation of London estates around SE1 but I think it means in the actual city.

Thanks for this.
The Red Lion Square bin is not too far away.
Will try and report back

Southwark counci's recycling depot at the Old Kent Road takes all types of electrical stuff - I think you can dispose of more or less anything.

It does but, for some parts of SE1, takes a lot longer to get to than Red Lion Square and isn't really on the way to anywhere.

I'm looking forward to Jazzy's report re the continued existence of the Red Lion Square bin.

We tend to save them up and then drop off at the OKR centre but I appreciate it's not a convenient location for everyone. Does anyone know the official Southwark line on recycling these items?

I wish we could put them in with mixed recycling

Feedback on the Red Lion Square recycling facilities.

They take: phones, remote controls, VCR's, Digiboxes, electronic toys, kettles, hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, shavers, small kitchen appliances, irons, small DIY tools, clocks, radios.

They don't take: TV monitors, computers, cookers, washing machines, light bulbs, batteries, anything that will not fit in the bin.
