Residents of Whaley Bridge and surrounding areas have an opportunity to pass on unwanted household electrical items for recycling or reuse in a novel scheme being run by Derbyshire County Council in conjunction with the Glossopdale furniture project, Advantage Waste Brokers, and Tescos in Whaley Bridge.
Just bring your unwanted items, broken or working, to Tesco, Bridgemont, Whaley Bridge , SK237HT on Saturday 27th September 10am to 4pm.
Working items will be safety tested by Glossopdale Furniture project and used to help families on tight budgets or sold at low prices in their shops.
Broken items will be recycled and turned into useful new products.
If you have large working items, you can call Glossopdale Furniture project on 01457 857 505 and have the items collected for free.
Almost everything will be accepted, except industrial equipment or lightbulbs. A list is shown in the brochure below.
The event is a great opportunity to have a clear out and to see your unwanted items recycled rather than land-filled, with the possibility of winning a £50 shopping voucher as well.
