FREE kerbside collection of all electrical appliances, Thursday 8th May 2014

Please recycle your waste electrical items and help our community!

Do you have electrical items that you no longer use or want?

WISER Recycling are a local recycling company based in St Ives and will be conducting another collection of household Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Histon and Impington! Electrical items will be collected on Thursday 8th May 2014 by WISER vehicles. WISER will collect any electrical item (including non-working) from hairdryers, videos, microwaves, to televisions and fridge/freezers – basically, anything with a plug on. WISER Recycling will collect from right outside your house! All items will be taken to our fully licensed treatment facility in St Ives for Reuse, Refurbishment or Recycling.

WISER has partnerships with many local and regional charities including Emmaus, Lighthouse, i-Trust and Eco-Computer Systems through which it sells working items back to social groups and low income families. They are fully permitted and authorised by the Environment Agency and operate to international standards; ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety), ensuring a professional recycling and recovery service, second to none.

Please make use of this free service, as everyone benefits!  In the meantime, if you’d like to find out more about WISER’s services, please visit their website:

Place all your electrical waste kerbside by 10am. For assistance with larger items please contact WISER on 0845 894 9979, who can assist with moving them from your property.  The parish council will receive revenue for all WEEE collected for use on community projects.  The last collection raised £102, which is a very good starting point, but would be lovely to generate more income for us all to benefit from which will be used on environmental projects in Histon and Impington
