Fourth Cambridge electronic waste recycling event

For the fourth year running, businesses, residents, schools and colleges in Cambridge are being urged to recycle their broken or unwanted electronics at a two-day event at University of Cambridge, Sidgwick Site Car Park, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DD.

The convenience of this local event has proved popular with students, local residents and University departments. Local businesses, especially small businesses, which may not have regular Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) collections, are also keen to take part in this free recycling event.

The recycling event takes place on Wednesday 11 March, from 7.30 am to 5 pm, and on Thursday 12 March, from 7.30 am to 3.30 pm. All types of business and household electronic waste will be accepted for free and staff will be on hand to help with unloading. 

Please see the press release for this event.
