How Recycle IT will Support Eco Week.
Recycle IT in association with South Dublin County Council hope to spread the message that electrical and electronic recylcing is good for our environent and in order to promote this message Recycle IT will operate a number of events during the week including our interactive “How WEEE Works” workshop for schools, open days for electrical recycling in Tallaght and Clondalkin and a vintage WEEE display in South Dublin Country Council offices in Tallaght.
Collection Day for Workers and Business
“How WEEE Works” Schools Workshops
Over the years, Recycle IT have learned lots while recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The team have decided to share this learning through a demonstration workshop called “How WEEE Works. The workshop introduces young learners (aged 8 to 10 years) to the concept of practical reuse and how electrical items can be recovered, reused and recycled.
The team visit a number of schools each year to share experiences, offer insights and they always leave with lots of ideas. If your school is interested in having the Recycle IT team visit during the year please give Una a call on 01 4578321.
