Hampshire County Council Recycling Week

Posted on 12th July, 2012

For National Recycle Week 2012 WasteCare has worked closely with Hampshire County Council and Hampshire’s district authority’s to promote small WEEE collections from schools, community centres and businesses across the county. In all 97 locations took part, collecting all types of small waste electrical items for reuse and recycling. As part of the campaign Hampshire County Council enlisted a consultancy to carry out a study on the material collected in order to try and gain an insight into common items discarded, looking at their age, brand and make up. Computer Salvage Specialists Ltd have assisted WasteCare by providing yard space at their brand new Thatcham site for the material collected enabling the Hampshire study and also the PAT testing of items to take place. All items suitable for reuse are being donated to local charities across Hampshire for resale with the remaining material being recycled.
