WeeeCare has started a radio campaign that will run throughout July to inform the local public about a free collection service for their waste electronics. Click here to listen.

Old televisions, washing machines, videos, blenders, in fact any Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment (WEEE) will be collected and recycled for free in Basingstoke throughout July.

This is part of a trial which is being carried out by specialist recycling company WeeeCare in conjunction with Tesco and Basingstoke and deane borough council.

All types of WEEE will be collected direct from households and from Tesco car park’s in the town every Sunday during the month. This is part of a drive by WeeeCare to highlight the waste collection and recycling services that are available to the general public.

Peter Hunt, Chairman of WeeeCare said:

“We know that there is a lot of old electrical equipment in people’s garages and spare rooms across the country, we want to make it as easy as possible for people to dispose of these items responsibly. Therefore, we are taking our service straight to them.”

If the trial is successful it could lead to further specialist WEEE collection services being set up by the firm across the country.
