Free Electrical Waste Recycling Days in Ennis and Kilrush

tvClare County Council and the European Recycling Platform (ERP) are providing free recycling days for householders in Kilrush Mart this Friday and in Ennis Mart on Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

Staff will be on hand to accept electrical equipment free of charge.

More than 11 tonnes of electronic waste has been collected at previous recycling days in Clare.

“The free recycling open days in Ennis and Kilrush offers people an opportunity to dispose of all types of electronic waste and used batteries of any type,” explained Karen Foley, Environmental Awareness Officer, Clare County Council.

She continued: “Members of the public can bring along items such as TV’s, washing machines, IT equipment, fridge freezers and stereos, anything that has or indeed had a battery or a plug and ERP will recycle it free of charge.”

“ERP is also encouraging people to bring along any used batteries that maybe lying around the home or garage – from radio batteries to your mobile phone battery (AA, AAA, PP9, etc) even rechargeable batteries and car batteries,” Ms. Foley added.

Ms. Foley noted that electronic waste and waste batteries is the fastest growing category of electronic waste in the world.

“We are encouraging the people of Clare to keep up their good work in diverting electronic waste from Clare’s landfills. ERP recycling officers will be on hand to help with the unloading of items,” she said.

Householders are reminded that they can bring their waste electrical and electronic equipment to any of the five recycling centres across the county, namely Central Waste Management Facility, Ballyduffbeg, Inagh; Ennis Recycling Centre; Lisdeen Recycling Centre & Transfer Station; Scarriff Recycling Centre & Transfer Station; and Shannon Recycling Centre.
