A new recycling bin for small electrical appliances such as hairdryers and irons has been installed outside Mint Street Park by Southwark Council and Veolia Environmental Services.
Southwark's waste contractor Veolia this week announced that it has placed six banks for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) across the borough.
WEEE banks will accept all small handheld electrical items that are no longer wanted or are broken and not operational. Accepted items include handheld electrical tools, radios, hair dryers, kettles, computer keyboards, small laptops and mobile phones.
The other five Southwark WEE banks can be found at Peckham Rye Park, Bel Air Park, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, Camberwell Green and Sainsbury's at Dog Kennel Hill.
