As a reminder, here’s what we said about National Recycling Week previously:
Love your electricals – set them free!
According to the Recycle Now website, this year’s Recycle Week is the perfect opportunity to clear out your cupboard, the shed or attic and give any old, broken or unwanted small electricals the chance to be useful again. According to research, our modern reliance on electrical goods and the emotional bonds we form with them prevent people from recycling unused items. However, many of these much-loved items could be put to good use by someone else, or be broken down into components: recycling the valuable materials to help preserve natural resources.
Did you know?
Three out of every four of us have at least one old or unused electrical item in our home which could be recycled to help save precious resources. Many of these items contain important plastics and metals that can be recycled to make new products. For example, just one toaster can provide enough steel to make 25 new cans.
This year Recycle Week also sees the Recycle Now campaign joining up with the British Heart Foundation to promote donation of electrical items that are still in good working condition. They have a handy section on their website to find your nearest British Heart Foundation store to donate your electrical items that are in good condition. You can view the BHT store locator here.
