WEEE Collection Scheme off to a Flying Start

Approximately 13 tonnes of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) have been collected across East Northamptonshire in just 6 weeks since a new collection was launched.

Following a successful pilot in Raunds, the Waste team at East Northamptonshire Council rolled out a weekly WEEE collection scheme in mid-December and have already seen a brilliant response.

 

Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said “As a Council, we are committed to helping residents with their recycling in the district and are delighted that there has been such a high uptake of the WEEE collection scheme in a short space of time.

 

“But the work doesn’t stop here and we encourage East Northants residents to carry on putting out their unwanted electrical items for collection, so we can maintain these high figures and avoid electrical products being sent for disposal unnecessarily.”

 

Since December 2019, electrical items including kettles, speakers, microwaves, printers and other small electrical items have all been collected from neighbourhoods across the district and will now be sent to a dedicated facility for sorting and recycling.

 

Residents across East Northamptonshire who have unwanted small electrical items should place them out for recycling on their usual collection day in a carrier bag, next to recycling or refuse bins and a full list of items which can be accepted is available on East Northamptonshire Council’s website.

 

For full details about the weekly WEEE collections, residents in East Northamptonshire should visit www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/WEEE

As part of Big Energy Saving Week, held on 20th-26th January 2020, Cambridgeshire-based charity PECT can help you discover how to reduce your household’s carbon footprint and save on energy costs.

 

There is substantial evidence about the detrimental impact of inadequate household heating on your physical and mental health. Big Energy Saving Week is a national campaign to help people cut their energy bills and keep their homes heated for less.

Citizens Advice and the Energy Saving Trust run the annual campaign in collaboration with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and with the support of numerous organisations, charities and companies.

 

We all have the power to save energy, money and the environment through everyday actions. The campaign raises awareness about how simple changes such as switching energy supplier, accessing grants, and making homes more energy efficient can have a big difference.

 

PECT will be on-hand throughout the week and beyond to provide advice to those people who are struggling to pay their energy bills or cannot keep their home heated at a sufficient temperature. Health impacts caused by cold homes include cardiovascular and respiratory problems, diminished resistance to infection, and increased levels of anxiety and social isolation.

 

“Head to one of our Big Energy Saving Week events to see out how we can help your household save energy,” explains Project Officer Nikki Dekker. “We can provide you with the information and resources needed to stay warm and healthy, whilst cutting costs and carbon. We can also point you in the right direction for further support and funding opportunities.”
