Schools, community groups and good causes across North Lincolnshire are being given the chance to win £1,000 worth of new electrical products as part of a new responsible recycling initiative.
The community prize pot has been put forward by not-for-profit Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling scheme, REPIC, in partnership with North Lincolnshire local council.
The giveaway is running across ten areas in England and Wales and ten in Scotland.
Any school, community group, or good cause in North Lincolnshire can put itself forward for the electrical goodies – or they can nominate another cause. They simply need to say: “What new electrical product/products do you need - up to the value of £1,000 - and why?” Followed by answering: “What does WEEE stand for?”
All eligible applications that answer the question correctly will be considered.
Dr Philip Morton, CEO of REPIC says: “We’re proud to celebrate 10 years of successful WEEE recycling and we wanted to mark it with a worthwhile community initiative and hopefully encourage further responsible recycling of electricals at the same time. It’s great to team up with North Lincolnshire Council and we’re looking forward to receiving the entries – whether the request is for something simple like a microwave - or whether it’s a higher value purchase such as washing machine or laptop.”
