There are nine reasons why recycling has got easier in Ipswich.
New recycling banks for the disposal of small electrical items have been installed throughout the town – it doesn’t matter whether your toasters, hair-dryers or even your electric toothbrush are working or not.
If that wasn’t enough, Ipswich Borough Council is putting on another of its popular Give & Take events next month.
Simply go along to Gainsborough Labour Club, 394 Landseer Road, Ipswich IP3 9LX, on Tuesday 4th April and pick up anything that takes your fancy for free. You can also take along items, including electricals, books, textiles, bikes and furniture, to ensure they go to a good home and don’t go to waste. The event is on between 9am and 3pm (9am to 11am – drop-off only).

The Ipswich Furniture Project will collect (for free) larger electrical items, including washing machines, tumble dryers, cookers, fridges and freezers, TVs, computers and microwaves.
