Local businesses can recycle their electrical waste for free and save money on collection, as well as valuable space.

Hounslow Council has signed up to a scheme providing free collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment for businesses and organisations in London.

Cllr Colin Ellar, cabinet member for environment at the council, said:

“Local businesses can find it hard to dispose of electrical items, so I hope this new service will encourage more recycling.

“You can recycle anything – big or small – from an industrial fridge-freezer to a pocket calculator.

“The service even accepts items from home if employees bring them to work and include them in the collection.”

The scheme was recently launched through a partnership between DHL Envirosolutions and SWEEP (a London-based recycling facility).

Currently operating in a number of London boroughs, the service will expand across the whole city this summer. To find out more or book a collection visit www.123recycleforfree.com
