Did you get a nice new phone for Christmas? Or maybe a tablet? Now you're wondering what to do with your old one?

Well fear not - Tech Take Back is here! Working in partnership with Tech-Takeback, you can bring along old phones, tablets, laptops and data bearing tech.

These will be professionally wiped of all data through their certified secure data-erasure process, ready to either be refurbished and sold on if possible, or recycled if not.

Wonder Day

Stay tuned for Wonder Day 2023
Do you ever wonder what happens to your clear bag recycling? Come along to a free, fun-filled family Wonder Day to find out where your recycling goes once it is collected.

Join our waste contractor, Veolia at its annual Wonder Day, to see the Integrated Waste Management Facility sort recycling using the latest innovations, and meet some of the experts that work behind the scenes. Tours of the facility will be taking place throughout the day to give you an insight into how your waste is actually a valuable resource that can help us to build a sustainable future.

In addition to the tours there will be lots of entertainment for the whole family including interactive exhibits, games and workshops. Tour time slots are limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to avoid any disappointment.
