Approximately 13 tonnes of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) have been collected across East Northamptonshire in just 6 weeks since a new collection was launched.
Following a successful pilot in Raunds, the Waste team at East Northamptonshire Council rolled out a weekly WEEE collection scheme in mid-December and have already seen a brilliant response.
Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said "As a Council, we are committed to helping residents with their recycling in the district and are delighted that there has been such a high uptake of the WEEE collection scheme in a short space of time. More »
"But the work doesn't stop here and we encourage East Northants residents to carry on putting out their unwanted electrical items for collection, so we can maintain these high figures and avoid electrical products being sent for disposal unnecessarily."
Since December 2019, electrical items including kettles, speakers, microwaves, printers and other small electrical items have all been collected from neighbourhoods across the district and will now be sent to a dedicated facility for sorting and recycling.
Residents across East Northamptonshire who have unwanted small electrical items should place them out for recycling on their usual collection day in a carrier bag, next to recycling or refuse bins and a full list of items which can be accepted is available on East Northamptonshire Council's website.
