Do you have electrical/electronic items that you no longer use or want? Are they wasting space in your garage, shed, cupboards or back-yard? Would you like to see them gone? Wiser Recycling can help YOU, and YOU can help your Parish Council ...

Wiser Recycling are a local recycling company, based in St Ives, and will be conducting a collection of household waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) throughout the parish on Wednesday 21st October.

Electrical items will be collected in the morning on the day by Wiser Recycling's own vehicles. They will collect ANY electrical or electronic item (even if it no longer works) from videos, hair-dryers and microwaves to televisions, washing machines and fridge/freezers – basically, anything that usually has a plug on it.

They will collect from right outside your house. Please place any items you wish to be collected 'kerbside' between 08:00 and 10:00 on the collection day. If possible, for safety reasons, please avoid putting items outside the evening before. Their collectors will even help with moving larger items from your property on the day rather than obstruct the footpath.

All items will be taken to their fully licensed treatment facility in St Ives for reuse, recycling or refurbishment.

Posters will be displayed around the parish nearer the date to reminder everyone.

On the collection day, Wiser Recycling vehicles will be clearly identifiable – if you should see any unauthorised vehicles stealing the material, please call 999 and report a 'theft in progress' and give them details of the vehicle's registration.

Wiser Recycling has partnerships with many local and regional charities including Emmaus, Lighthouse and Eco-Computer Systems through which it sells working items back to social groups and low-income families. They are fully authorised by the Environment Agency and operate to international standards - ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety).

The Parish Council will receive a revenue from the WEEE collected, to be spent on community projects. Top of the leader board locally, so far, is Willingham Parish with 9.1 tonnes collected in one day! We may be smaller; let's see if we can do better.
