Have your say

HAVE you got any burned-out sandwich toasters, broken kettles or other unwanted electrical items lying about gathering dust at home?

If so, then Havant Borough Council wants to hear from you.

To mark National Recycling Week, the council has organised collection points.

The authority is working with Weeecare to make recycling small electrical items easy to recycle.

Residents can drop off unwanted or broken small electricals for free.

New regulations mean electrical items are restricted from landfill as they contain hazardous material.

Leigh Park Community Centre, in Dunsbury Way, and Waterlooville Community Centre, in Maurepas Way, will accept any small portable electrical or electronic items with a plug or batteries that can be easily carried by one person, apart from televisions or monitors.

People can also recycle electricals on Saturday, June 30 between 10am and 1pm at The Plaza car park in Civic Centre Road, Havant.
