Recycle your waste electrical items - Don’t bin it, bring it and win it
There are still 2 months left where you can win many great prizes by recycling your small waste electrical items at Bath North East Somerset Council's Recycling Centres.
Since June residents have won digital cameras, wind-up torches, high street vouchers and an iPad. There are still many great prizes to be won. The promotion is designed to highlight the importance of recycling waste electrical items. It is in conjunction with Repic, a waste consortium and partner of the Council.
The importance of WEEE
A person living in the UK is estimated to throw away some 3 tonnes of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in their lifetime. This is waste that goes into landfill resulting in costly Landfill Tax charges for the local taxpayer and harmful carbon emissions instead of recycling the valuable metal and plastics.

Councillor David Dixon (Lib-Dem, Oldfield), Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said, "It is really important that local people think about how to dispose of their waste electrical items responsibly and avoid putting them into the general rubbish for landfill. Bath & North East Somerset Council provides facilities at each of our Recycling Centres for these items and we urge people when they have a clear-out to use them."
Join the winners with a prize!
Matt MacKenzie won an iPad after emptying his flat and taking an old electric radiator and printer to the Recycling Centre in Radstock. He said, "I knew the competition was on as I had seen it advertised. I was thrilled with my prize for recycling old unwanted items. I work in IT so an iPad is ideal for me. Other people should go to their local Centre with their waste electrical items. Don't bin it. Bring it, and win it."
Remember that although the Bath Recycling Centre is temporarily closed until 3rd December, residents can bring as many household electrical items as they wish to our two other Centres in Keynsham and Midsomer Norton. They should speak with site staff to ask for scratch cards before depositing their WEEE.
Small electrical items are accepted for this competition only. They can have a plug, need batteries or charging, or have the crossed out wheelie bin logo.
