A council is urging residents across Derbyshire to recycle any broken electrical items they may have.
The call has been made by Derbyshire County Council in a bid to help reduce waste which goes to landfill.
A spokesman for the council said: “Bring out your broken electricals.
“You can take them to our recycling centres if they can’t be repaired.
“Please remove any batteries as these can be a fire hazard and there is a special container for them on site, next to the skip for the electricals.”
They continued: “Large retailers like supermarkets who sell batteries will also have containers for the recycling of used batteries.
“Other places local to you that recycle electricals and take used batteries can be found here: https://www.recycleyourelectricals.org.uk.”
