ON THE ROAD AGAIN – GET IT GOING AGAIN – GRANBY TOXTETH DEVELOPMENT TRUST – FREE COMMUNITY EVENT

Posted on Updated on

In collaboration with MERSEYSIDE RECYCLING AND WASTE AUTHORITY – MakeItWorkShop CIC will be holding its 2nd FREE community event at the fabulous Granby Toxteth Development Trust on Thursday 14th June between 11am and 2pm.

We had such an amazing turn out at our first On The Road event so decided to come back. It was brilliant that so many people brought things along for FREE PAT TESTS and repairs.

This really can SAVE YOU MONEY and cut down on landfill. Do you have electric/electronic items gathering dust that you just haven’t gotten round to putting in the bin. Why not get them checked out. MOST ELECTRIC/ELECTRONIC ITEMS PLACED ON LANDFILL STILL WORK!!!! Some just need a small fix. Don’t rush out and buy a new one yet, check if it can be repaired.

So why repair….it saves money, saves waste, saves energy and natural resources.

DONT THROW IT AWAY…..see if it can be restored. Even if it can’t be repaired there are many options still available.

We would love to see you on Thursday 14th June so come on down to Granby To the Development Trust.

JOIN US ON OUR JOURNEY TO REUSE, REPAIR, RECYCLE

Is your toaster toast? Has your kettle run out of steam?

Do you have old electrical items lying around at home?

From kettles to cameras, from battery-operated toys to toasters, from power drills to mobile phones, you have a few options other then putting them in the bin.

Repair, recycle or reuse. By doing this the electrical goods we stop going to landfill helps preserve resources and energy, and stops harmful chemicals entering the environment. As councils warn of a £1bn hike in their rubbish disposal bills because of rising landfill taxes, its time we rethought what we do with those items.

So how much money can be saved? A lot is the simple answer. Cutting down on electrical waste is a key part of this.
