Batteries and Mobile Phone Recycling Collections!!!

Batteries and Mobile Phone Recycling Collections!!!

From 1 December 2019, NWLDC will collect used batteries and mobile phones with household recycling collections.

This information has been communicated to residents on the back of the Christmas/2020 collection calendars and in the household recycling guide enclosed with the calendars.

Residents need to put out the batteries and mobile phones as follows:

1. Put batteries and mobile phones in a lidded, recyclable container such as a jam jar, margarine tub or plastic takeaway container. The batteries and mobile phones must remain separate to each other (e.g. batteries in a jam jar and mobile phones in a butter tub). More »

2. Put the container(s) out on the kerbside next to the red box on their recycling collection day.

3. The crews will tip the batteries and mobile phones into the relevant compartment on the recycling vehicle, then recycle the container afterwards.

The following will be accepted:

- All AAA and AA cells

- Sizes C and D

- Button batteries (watch and hearing aid batteries)

- Laptop batteries

- Power tool batteries

- Mobile phones (if accessible, the battery should be removed and put with the other batteries) » Less

Library Swap Stop - Coming Soon

Swepstone Parish Council have installed a new red phone box on Main Street, Newton Burgoland which will serve the parish as a "Library Swap Stop".

The parish were lucky enough to receive a combination of a kind donation from a parishioner, plus grant money to provide us all with the opportunity to upcycle the books we no longer read, and to treat ourselves to a new book.

The final touches are being made to the phone box, and so we encourage you to sort through any books, for both adults and children, that you feel could be donated to kick start the library swap stop; and of course, feel free to take advantage and treat yourself to a new book in the near future.

Please box up your donations and leave them in the safe porch area at 1,The Green, Newton Burgoland (the bungalow next to the school) from the 21st July onwards -

or alternatively, if you would prefer a collection please e-mail clerk.swepstone@gmail.com » Less
