WEEE Ireland, the Irish compliance scheme for electrical and battery recycling, will hold a series of WEEE collections throughout County Galway from this week.
The collections, supported by Galway County Council, will allow people across the county to get rid of any household electrical equipment and batteries in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
Anything with a battery or a plug can be recycled at WEEE collection days. Waste collection specialists from WEEE Ireland will be on hand to help people send their toasters, vacuum cleaners, fridges, and every other electrical item imaginable to a better place.
The public collections began this week and will continue until October 25. Today (Thursday ) will see collection points open beside the bring banks in Roundstone, and beside the church in Carna.
On Tuesday September 18, collections will be held at the GAA pitch in Indreabhán, and opposite the church in Leitir Mór. Thursday September 20 will see the turn of Moycullen, with collections at the GAA pitch, and at the bring banks in Oughterard.
Collection days will also take place in Corr Na Móna, Headford, Athenry, Claregalway, Abbeyknockmoy, Monivea, Clarinbridge, Kinvara, Abbey, Woodford, Kiltormer, Eyrecourt, Williamstown, Glenamaddy, Kilkerrin, Rosmuc, Cashla, An Spidéal, and Barna.
