Win Cash for Your Old Electricals in Derbyshire

Are you a Derbyshire resident with old, broken or unwanted electricals? Dig them out and take them to one of your household waste recycling centres in the new year for your chance to win one of fifteen £100 cash prizes.

From hair dryers to hedge-trimmers, fairy lights to fridges and toasters to TVs, there's a wide range of household appliances you can take to the recycling centres. From 2nd January, you can exchange them for a golden ticket - which means you could be quids in.

Simply ask for your golden ticket from a member of staff at any of the nine recycling centres, use your unique ticket number to enter the competition and find out if you're an instant winner. The more items you recycle, the more tickets you'll get.

Councillor Simon Spencer, our cabinet member for highways, transport and infrastructure, said:

'This is a great way of putting unwanted electricals to good use − with the added bonus of a chance to win £100. It's a shocking fact that across the UK we throw away more than a quarter of the electrical items we buy instead of recycling them. We spend £20 million a year dealing with waste in Derbyshire which residents choose not to recycle.

'But if every Derbyshire household took just one electrical item to one of our recycling centres in January we could recycle an additional 333,000 appliances, saving not only tax-payers' cash but also the precious metals and other valuable materials they contain.'

The competition prizes are being funded by Advantage Waste Brokers who is the contractor that works on Derbyshire County Council's behalf to collect and recycle electrical items taken to its recycling centres.
