Free WEEE Electrical Collection Swinford July 2016
The annual free weee electrical collection Swinford will be in Tesco car park on Saturday 23rd July. The collection will be open from 10 am until 4 pm. Its a little earlier this year as its usually on around October time. Last years collection in October, there was 18 & 1/2 tonnes of electrical waste collected at the Swinford collection point.
WEEE Ireland organises and promotes public collection events of WEEE and waste batteries in areas which don’t have convenient access to civic amenity sites. Any household item with a plug or battery will be accepted at these collection events – from large items such as fridges, dishwashers and tumble-dryers, to small household items such as remote controls, electric toothbrushes and everything in between. All waste batteries will be accepted free of charge, including AA and AAA batteries, torch batteries, watch batteries, car batteries and electric fence batteries.
These days are promoted through local schools, local press and radio and again it’s free for the general public to bring any batteries or household item with a plug or a battery for recycling. They’re a great chance for you to finally clean out the garage or attic.
