GOT ANY UNWANTED TECH OR GADGETS AT HOME?
Bring them to #RehomeYourElectricals at the The Old Bath House and Community Centre! We'll pass them on to new owners through local charity partners in the Milton Keynes area.
Did you know electrical waste (e-waste) is the fastest growing type of waste in the world (UN)? In fact, in the UK we throw out 100,000 tonnes of e-waste per year, and still have a shocking 880 million gadgets gathering dust at home.
