A recycling event which has proved a big hit in the past returns to Hitchin next week.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling event, organised by North Herts District Council and contractors Veolia, will run from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, April 18, at the town’s Woodside car park on Walsworth Road.
It’s billed as a chance for householders to dispose of small electrical items cluttering up the home without just chucking them in the bin.
Huge amounts of electrical goods have been collected and sent for recycling at previous sessions, preventing tonnes of unwanted electrical items from being sent to landfill sites.
Items that can be accepted include IT equipment such as computers, printers, scanners, audio/visual items like TVs, video recorders, games consoles, mobile phones and MP3 players as well as kitchen kit including kettles, toasters, microwaves, blenders and bread makers.

General household items are also welcome, and textiles, clothes and shoes can also be brought to the event.
The council’s Vaughan Watson said: “Electrical items shouldn’t be put in the purple landfill bins and can’t be put in the grey recycling bins – this is a perfect opportunity to dispose of all those unused items.
