MDDC PRESS RELEASE: Nearly 40 tonnes of waste electrical items collected

Since September 2020 householders in Mid Devon have recycled 38.3 tonnes of unwanted small electricals. However, the council is calling on more householders to recycle their electricals in a bid to reach 59 tonnes by September 2022. To reach this target the Council has teamed up with the not for profit Material Focus, to raise further awareness of this service as part of the national Recycle Your Electricals Campaign. Anything with a plug, battery, or cable can be re-used or recycled.
Mid Devon householders have been able to easily declutter their unwanted electricals via their kerbside collection service, whilst also helping the environment. So far the service has collected over 1kg per household, but with the average UK household binning 5.3kg of electricals every year, Mid Devon District Council is calling on even more households to recycle their electricals.
