A competition is being currently run by Cambridge City Council which, it is hoped, will kindle greater interest in recycling.
The Council has announced that anyone leaving any small electrical device – phone, radio, hairdryer, kettle and such-like – at one of its recycling banks before the end of February can attach an entry form which will entitle them to free entry to a prize draw. Three monthly draws will offer a solar-powered gadget charger and there will then be a final prize draw in March to win a Kindle e-reader.
Anything with a plug or battery which can fit through a 12 ins opening will be accepted at the banks and entry forms are available from the council offices or in the authority’s Cambridge Matters magazine.
Only a tiny fraction of electrical waste in Cambridge is put into recycling banks and the Council is using the competition as a means of raising awareness of this more environmentally friendly method of disposing of such items. The Council will, of course, also be keen to see the idea generating plenty of support.
