Is there anything I have to do to prepare my electrical items (WEEE) for recycling?

Yes, in the case of fridges or freezers you must take out all the food and have them defrosted so that they don't make a mess and attract unwanted rodents during transport and recycling. With computers and other communication devices, don't forget to securely wipe the drives before recycling. With everything else, just make sure they are removed from their packaging, are as clean as possible and don't pose a health and safety risk to our friends at the recycling centres.
