Executive councillor for the environment Tom Conn said: “We are delighted to be able to offer local residents the chance to recycle their electrical items once more.

“Our contractor who processes electrical items for recycling has confirmed that they can accept the material again which ensures this material is being handled in an environmentally responsible way.

“Thanks to local residents for their patience while we worked to restore this service, which was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We appreciate that many people have been storing items on their property until they are able to dispose of them in an appropriate way.”
