The free service aims to collect 10,000 unwanted electrical items and provide at least 500 reused electricals to residents within the first year of operation. This follows the successful Tech-Takeback service that has been running a series of e- collection pop-up events in partnership with the council’s Cityclean service for the last three years.
The app can be downloaded here: The ZeroNet app or from the Tech-Takeback website, book a collection appointment and the TTB staff will collect from your doorstep – all done within Covid social distancing and safety measures.
There is a large list of items that can be donated which include PCs & Laptops Tablets, Hard drives, CDs and DVDs, cables and kitchen appliances, to name a few. With surveys estimating that 51% of households have at least one unused electronic device, this service can allow more material to enter the waste stream. Importantly, any data on devices such as PCs and mobile phones will be professionally wiped when collected, a predominant reason that small electricals are being hoarded in homes.
Vikkie Fitzgerald, Head of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) at Clarity Environmental, was delighted by the service being rolled out.
“This is encouraging news for anyone within the waste industry, with the effect of lockdown throughout this year impacting the ability of the public to access HWRC’s and retailers that provide take-back services, this is exactly the kind of scheme that will ensure we can continue to push to meet the targets.
“This makes it easy for consumers to dispose of electrical goods, it allows the waste industry to access materials that may have just been left in homes, goods can have a new lease of life by being reused and benefitting charities and the remainder will be recycled responsibly.
“As a business, providing a WEEE compliance scheme in Brighton and Hove, we are extremely pleased to see the initiative and innovation in ensuring WEEE can be collected inclusively, safely and with both businesses and charities benefiting.”
