Nowadays, everyone has more than 15-55 electrical items in their house. And every family member has their own. Everyone should repair and reuse their electrical items instead of throwing them to the bin.
First of all, if you can't and you really can't repair that item, you should recycle it, not throw it! Someone should try repairing the electrical items and we should keep them a lot of time. If the item is very old, there aren't a lot of chances for it to be repaired.
Did you know that according to official Environment Agency data, the UK recycled only a third of the weight of electrical products that was purchased last year?
If UK recycled only a third of the weight of electrical products, think about other countries, about how many electrical items you had in your house and you've thrown them. From alarm clocks, CD/DVD/game consoles, small kitchen such as kettles, toasters, food mixers and blenders, microwave ovens, curling tongs, straighteners, garden tools, to TV's, telephones and radios.
But what to do with white goods, such as freezers, fridges, cookers, washing machines and dishwashers? Well, you also have to recycle them. Just think that you'll help your country and the environment of this world!
