In January 2014 we helped 2 leisure centres in Brent and the Tricycle Theatre on Kilburn High Road run recycling events to collect small electrical item. At these 3 locations residents brought in over 220 items including chargers, phones, clocks and kettles.
Small electrical items can easily slip into a bin bag but by bringing these items in to local locations that were being visited or walked past, over 370kg of unwanted electricals were recycled instead of being sent to landfill.
To find out if there’s one happening near you check out our events section.
Get in touch if you want to put on an event and have questions or need a bit of help.
