Unwanted hairdryers, toasters, kettles, blenders, vacuum cleaners, and other small and medium electricals can be recycled to raise money for charity at the latest Don’t bin it, bring it! event.
For the event Broadland District Council have teamed up with Norwich City Council who have run four other free recycling drop-offs. The previous events have raised more than £10,000 for Norwich’s local British Heart Foundation store in Castle Meadow and six tonnes of electricals saved from landfill.
Electricals in both working and non-working order can be brought along. The working items are donated to the charity store for re-sale and the cash raised is used nationally to fund its life-saving work. The non-working electricals are recycled, generating recycling credits for the city and district council’s waste and recycling services.
Most small household electrical items are accepted including: computers, games consoles, music systems, vacuum cleaners, small kitchen appliances, hairdryers and phones. Unfortunately we cannot accept large items that cannot be easily lifted including: fridges, freezers, washing machines, and commercial or industrial items.
Don’t bin it, bring it! opens at 8am on Saturday 2 July 2016 at Norwich Airport Park and Ride, Hellesdon, NR6 6JT. After 11am it will move to the Norse depot just off Fifers Lane until 1pm.
