WEEE Recycling


WEEE Ireland is a not for profit organisation, committed to delivering cost effective compliance on behalf of our Producer Members.

80% of the raw materials that are recovered from large household appliances go to recycling and to be reused.

WEEE Ireland represents 96% of the Irish battery industry and 74% of the household electrical and electronic industry who have a Producer responsibility under EU Battery Directive 2006/66/EC & WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU to organise and finance the environmental management of their products at their end of life.

WEEE Ireland has been operational since 2005 and has been the Scheme of choice in Ireland maintaining majority market share across all sectors. WEEE Ireland operates under the approval of the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment.

In line with government directive and Irish law, we have added the price of recycling your purchased product into the cost.  The prices vary from each category but here is a table to outline each category that we sell, that you pay for.


Phibsboro Electrical Wholesalers Ltd will take back your WEEE on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis, free of charge at the time of collection. Waste batteries are taken back in store on a one-for zero basis (i.e. no purchased required) as long as they are of equivalent type to that sold by us. WEEE and waste batteries can also be returned to your local civic amenity site free of charge. The following link will show you how to find the civic amenity site closest to you where you can recycle your WEEE, batteries and light bulbs, https://www.weeeireland.ie/household-recycling/where-can-i-recycle/. Never put WEEE, batteries or light bulbs in any of your bins
