carmarthenshire residents use skip hire in electrical recycling effort

23 Apr 2012

Residents in Carmarthenshire have recycled old hairdryers, kettles, vacuum cleaners and even a video camera in a new recycling effort.

People were encouraged to bring unwanted electrical items to two WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) events in the county.

In total, 626kg of old electricals were recycled, with the residents needing to use skip hire to dispose of all the waste.

Council recycling officer Karen Fulham said: “It is important we reduce and recycle as much of our waste as possible.

“Everyone knows you can recycle paper and tins, but few of us realise that old electrical items such as toasters and power tools can also be recycled.”
