Repair it rather than bin it
Recycle for Essex will be hosting a free repair café in Halstead where residents can bring a bike or any unwanted electrical items in need of repair, which will then be reused or recycled.
The event aims to encourage people to recycle their unwanted electrical items as around one million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste are generated every year.
The event will take place on Saturday, May 14, at Halstead Library, Bridge Street, from 10am to 4pm.
There will also be fun children’s craft activities throughout the day.
