Mobile phones, digital cameras, tablets, headphones, battery-operated toys – were all high on wish lists this past Christmas.
As a large proportion of those shiny, new gadgets will be replacing yesterday’s models, the question facing their owners is what to do with the old ones?
Local residents have opportunity to declutter their homes of broken or unwanted small electrical items such as alarm clocks, toys, kettles and hair dryers.
In February, Willesden Library will be hosting electrical recycling events, where residents can drop by and get rid of any unwanted electronic items, in a safe and environmentally friendly way on the following dates
- 6 February – 12 February
- 13 February – 19 February
By recycling their unwanted items the owners are helping to protect the environment as fewer raw materials need to be mined for use in the manufacture of new products.
