Thurles Free WEEE Collection May 14th 2016

Electrical and Battery Recycling

Electrical and Battery Recycling

A reminder to all regarding the recycling of old electrical appliances via WEEE Ireland.

WEEE Ireland is a not for profit organisation, founded by the producers of electrical and electronic appliances, in order to comply with the legal obligations imposed by the WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC.

Remember WEEE material is anything with a plug normally attached and WEEE Ireland will be making collections from 10.00am until 4.00pm, on Saturday 14th of May 2016, from the following Venues:- Town Car Park, Main Square, Templemore and the Mid-Tipperary Mart Yard, Stradavoher, here in Thurles Town.

So here is your opportunity to bring along old redundant electrical appliances for recycling. Remember this is a completely FREE service, eliminating the temptation to dump illegally in our beautiful countryside.

    Just wondering if there will be another collection this year?

    Regret I can not affirm the answer to your question. However you can keep an eye on collection dates by logging unto http://www.weeeireland.ie/collections/public-collections-day/
    Remember also if you are planning on updating any electrical items in your home, don’t forget how easy it is to bring back your now unwanted electronic goods to the same retailers (free of charge to consumers) for them to recycling (only on a one for one, like for like basis). Retailers include a recycling charge in their initial sale price, thus covering this recycling cost.
