Broadland News Spring 20127Recycling and ReusingEvent gives new life to unwanted electrical goodsMore than 750 items were collected for reuse or recycling at an electrical give and take event organised by Broadland District Council - 5.81 tonnes saved from landfill. The event took place in January in Aylsham and was opened by council Chairman, Councillor Claudette Bannock. The most common things taken for reuse were hifi systems, but there was a wide variety of household items on offer from toasters to computers. Visitors were so pleased with the new items they took away that they donated more than £116 to the East Anglian Air Ambulance."It's brilliant that all these things, which could have ended up as a nuisance in landfill, will instead give pleasure to their new owners," said Cllr John Fisher, Broadland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Environmental Excellence. "Broadland residents have been terrific at taking these opportunities to make sure as little waste as possible ends up in landfill."Even non-working items will be put to use in other forms. Televisions and computer monitors will be recycled, and all other items removed by Impact East to provide work-based training for probationers. They will be re-conditioned for reuse or recycled where that's not possible. The event was opened by Council Chairman Claudette Bannock pictured with Ray and Joan Marshall - proud new owners of a donated lawnmower.Visitors to an electrical give and take event in Aylsham examine the working items on offer.
