Recycle Your Electricals has come up on my zero waste radar recently. Their website is full of practical information about how to recycle and how to resale electric and electronic devices.
Recycle Your Electricals helps you every step of the way. They tell you how to delete data from your smartphone, laptops and tablets, where to recycle your electrical items and how the material collected this way can be reused .
BBC journalist Paul Lewis as well as models and businesswomen Lily Cole (pictured above) and Caprice Bourret have been recruited to spread the word about the money people can pocket by selling their smartphones, juicers etc. and the waste that can be saved by recycling the items that cannot be neither sold nor donated to charities.
In the UK, 155,000 tonnes of electricals are discarded every year, instead of reusing or recycling them. That creates e-waste – and that poses a major threat to the environment and to human health.
