A theatre has launched a special eventi which encourages residents in Brent to recycle their dated and forgotten electronic goods.
The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn High Road, Kilburn, in partnership with West London Waste is hosting ‘WEEE Bring’ so locals can drop off small unwanted electronic goods.
The project started yesterday and will run until January 9.
Over the festive period, many have found themselves new owners of the latest state-of-the-art gadgetry which replaces their older models.
James Foran, the theatre’s operations manager, said: “At the Tricycle we’re committed to becoming a more environmentally sustainable theatre, reducing our energy emissions and establishing green initiatives that reduce our carbon footprint.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to work with West London Waste and the local community in Brent on an initiative which only takes a little effort for each individual but can have a real impact for all of us.”
Land filling of electronic goods can be particularly dangerous as it contains hazardous substances such as mercury, lead, beryllium and cadmium, according to the theatre.

Recycling these items means fewer raw materials need to be used in the manufacture of new goods and precious metals are used again.
