New household waste scheme in Scotland

New household waste scheme in Scotland
People living in Scotland could have the opportunity to recycle their household waste in more innovative ways thanks to a new service in Aberdeen.

Residents will be able to turn their electrical waste into useful products at four household recycling centres in the city.

Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is being accepted by the new initiative, including mobile phones, freezers, TVs, computer games, washing machines, smoke detectors and electric toothbrushes.

This energy efficient venture could help to reduce the effect on the environment of waste in the area.

Councillor Aileen Malone, housing and environment convener, said: "There are five main categories of electrical waste that we can recycle, the instructions for disposing into each category will be clearly displayed on site.

"We all have a responsibility for the environment and to reduce the amount of rubbish we send to landfill."

The five categories of WEEE that can be recycled are gas discharge lamps, cooling appliances, equipment containing cathode ray tubes, other large household appliances and all other electronic and electrical products.
