The Council is pleased to announce that it has installed the first of its WEEE recycling banks in Back Lane, Rochford.
WEEE banks (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) are there to take your broken, small electrical and electronic items such as toasters, kettles and shavers. The banks have a small opening and therefore are not able to take large items such as fridges, freezers and televisions.
The banks have been put in place to make life easier for residents. At the moment, small electrical and electronic items can’t be put in household bins so the WEEE banks give you a more convenient way of disposing of them.
As well as the WEEE banks, you can still recycle these items – and larger electrical items - at the Recycling Centre for Household Waste in Castle Road, Rayleigh.
