Oil filled radiators

Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle oil filled radiators.


Where possible get your broken electricals repaired.


Offer electrical items in good condition and full working order to charity shops or through an online reuse network. You can find your nearest charity here.

Sell through a car boot sale, jumble sale, or online market.

You may be able to offer some unwanted electricals items to friends, neighbours or relatives.


If you can drain the oil out of the radiator they can be taken to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and placed in the container for small electrical items.

If you cannot drain the oil please do not take them to the Recycling Centres. They may be accepted at a scrap metal yard.
