Where to take your old or unwanted electrical items . . .
A series of events are to be held across the East Riding to help residents recycle unwanted small electrical goods, instead of putting them in their bins at home. According to East Riding of Yorkshire Council thousands of electrical items are found in the waste collected from residents’ blue and green wheelie bins every year.
Councillor Symon Fraser told us: “Residents have made the East Riding the number one recycler in the country and do an amazing job of recycling at home. But some waste, like electrical items, can’t be put in your wheelie bins. The events have been organised to mark National Recycle Week, which runs from September 24th to 30th, and includes a special reception area being set up in the Tesco car park, off Morton Lane, on Thursday next week, September 20th, between 4 and 7pm.
Small electrical items – no bigger than a microwave – can be brought for recycling, including: Toasters, kettles, irons, food mixers, blenders, sandwich makers, coffee machines, hairdryers, hair straighteners, electric toothbrushes, electric razors, mobile phones, laptops, desktop computers, printers, radios, game consoles, DVD players, chargers, speakers, remote control toys, table lamps, electric fans, electric heaters, and power tools including drills.
