Fairy lights

Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle fairy lights.


Before thinking about reuse, recycling or disposal options for your fairy lights, have you considered whether they could be repaired?

There are several repair cafes and groups in Suffolk who offer free help to local communities. Please visit the repair cafes page to find out more.


If you no longer have a need for your fairly lights and they are in good working order, offer them to charity shops or through online networks like Freegle and Freecycle.


If they are beyond repair or reuse take them to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and place in small electricals items container. Make sure any batteries are removed and recycled in battery container.

Electrical items (mains and battery powered) must not be thrown away in your rubbish bin. They contain small quantities of hazardous material as well as precious metals and should be properly recycled.
