Have you any old, broken electrical items you have stored away thinking one day you’ll get around to fixing?
Recycle Devon are introducing a new service to boost the reuse of electrical items. Residents are now able to buy safety tested reused TVs, vacuum cleaners and lamps from the resale shop.
Check out the website https://www.recycledevon.org/ So far, the participating trial sites are:
- Pinbrook Recycling Centre, Exeter
- Ivybridge Recycling Centre
- Brunel Road Recycling Centre, Newton Abbot
- Knowle Hill Recycling Centre, Exmouth
- Bideford Recycling Centre
If this service proves popular then other recycling centres in Devon will be added.
