Six million waste electrical and electronic items are thrown away every year yet half of them could have been re-used or recycled.
To encourage more recycling, there are five events across the County where you can take your unwanted electricals that is being run by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership.
Bring down anything with a plug or batteries to any of these events "“ from a washing machine to a pocket calculator "“ which will then be recycled or reused:
- Saturday 25 June at the Newmarket Park and Ride, Newmarket Road, Cambridge, CB5 8AA
- Saturday 2 July at City Road Car Park near March Library City Road, March, PE15 9LS
- Saturday 9 July Littleport Sport & Leisure Centre, Camel Road, Littleport, CB6 1EW
- Sunday 17 July Trumpington Park and Ride, Hauxton Road, Cambridge, CB2 9FT
- Saturday 23 July at St Ives Park and Ride, Meadow Lane, St. Ives, PE27 4LG
These events are being funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
