And the WEEEinner is………
Congratulations to Mr Rob Lee from Rayleigh who won a digital radio simply by recycling his old electrical items at one of the special recycling events held in the District in January.
Last month saw Essex County Council’s WEEE Dinosaur tour the District raising awareness that you can recycle lots of small electrical equipment at the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling banks and any small WEEE in the blue LMB textile banks.
From broken or unwanted computer keyboards through to old television remote controls, you can now recycle lots of small electrical equipment at the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling bank in Back Lane Car Park, Rochford or at the Castle Road Recycling Centre in Rayleigh.
You can now also recycle any small WEEE in the blue LMB textile banks throughout the District in addition to any old or unwanted textiles which also go for reuse and recycling. Please place WEEE and textile items in separate bags. The most important thing is that small WEEE should not be disposed of in any of your three kerbside bins.
Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Councillor Mike Steptoe, said: “Congratulations to Mr Lee for winning the competition and thank you for bringing along your unwanted items to the WEEE recycling road shows, its good to know that residents are getting involved and embracing the new scheme. WEEE recycling is being made much easier for residents with the additional collection points. They can be happy knowing that their electrical items will avoid going to landfill sites and be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way”.
