Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Don't bin it - take it to a recycling centre
We live in a culture obsessed with 'stuff'. And you can guarantee there will be queues out the door of thousands of retailers on Black Friday (24th November) and products flying off websites on Cyber Monday (27th November).
If you genuinely need a new television or other expensive appliance, because your old one is broken or on its last legs, then go, go, go. You could get a bargain! For everyone else, it should be a no, no, no!
Here's where you can help... the recycling centre wants your old products. The broken ones. The ones you are replacing in the sales frenzy (rather you than us). Televisions, radios, speakers, remote controls, kettles, toasters, hair straighteners, phones, tablets, laptops, clocks, watches, e-readers - all of these can be recycled at a West Sussex County Council Household Waste Recycling Site.
Our nearest site in in Burgess Hill and by following this link you can find out all sort of useful information.
