Recycle used mobile phones for prizes
15 June 2010 — 4:23 PM
Residents in one London borough who recycle their used mobile phones stand a chance to get a reward for their actions.
Those in Sutton who hand in their unwanted electrical appliances as part of National Recycle Week will be entered into a prize draw, the Sutton Guardian reports.
People who recycle mobile phones between June 21st and 25th could win items donated by BatteryBack, Waitrose and Storm Environmental as part of an initiative being supported by the Appliance Reuse Centre (Arc).
Collection points are to be set up around the town for electrical appliances that weigh less than 10kg and executive member of environment and climate change at Sutton Council councillor Colin Hall told the newspaper it is a "win-win situation".
"Residents will have convenient places to get rid of their unwanted appliances and thanks to the work of Arc, a number of these appliances will be given a new lease of life," he stated.
National Recycle Week will also see some recycling banks take part in Recycle Week Rewards for Schools, which gives those who donate items tokens that local schools can use to win prizes.
