Bright sparks help gather Selsey electrical goods

MORE than 200 old TV sets have been collected at Selsey during a West Sussex County Council pilot bi-monthly service for small broken or unwanted electrical items.

Residents took these in during the second collection service of a range of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

“As well as the old televisions, more than 500 small items weighing about three tonnes were collected, including more than 50 kettles and irons and a mini jukebox,” said a county council spokesman.

In total, the collected WEEE weighed 7.4 tonnes, two-and-a-half-times greater than the 2.94 tonnes collected during the previous event held in November.

Selsey’s waste service, available every Friday between 8am-3pm at East Beach Car Park and currently taking general rubbish and green waste.
