Chance to reuse and recycle unwanted electrical items in Long Stratton

South Norfolk residents are being invited to reuse and recycle their broken and unwanted household electrical items at a give and take event in Long Stratton tomorrow.

The waste electrical reuse and recycling event not only gives residents a chance to take along their own broken and unwanted items, but allows residents to take away working items for free –and if they wish make a donation to charity.

The event will run at Long Stratton Methodist Church in Manor Road from 9am to 2.30pm, when local people can pass electrical goods to a team from South Norfolk Council, and then from 11am to 2.30pm, items will be available to take away.

Any electrical item can be accepted with the exception of fridges and freezers.

All items will be tested by a qualified electrician and all those that pass the safety requirements will be available for people to take away.

Councillor Keith Kiddie, cabinet member for environment and regulation, said: “We organise these events in response to calls from our community for more ways to reuse and recycle. Local people want our help in cutting back on the rubbish being sent to landfill. This approach to supporting our residents’ needs continues to be very popular with them.””
