Eastern Midlands Waste Management Plan - Spotlight

"This Changes Everything: Capitalism v's The Climate"
If you haven't had a chance to read the book but want to know what its all about have a look at the documentary here



Inspired by Naomi Klein's international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
WEEE Public Collection Days 

WEEE Ireland organises and promotes public collection events of WEEE and waste batteries in areas which do not have convenient access to civic amenity sites. Any household item with a plug or battery will be accepted at these collection events – from large items such as fridges, dishwashers and tumble dryers, to small household items such as remote controls, electric toothbrushes and everything in between. All waste batteries will be accepted free of charge, including AA and AAA batteries, torch batteries, watch batteries, car batteries and electric fence batteries.

It’s FREE for the general public to bring any batteries or household item with a plug or a battery for recycling. This is a great chance for you to finally clean out the garage or attic.

Examples of items that can be recycled for free include:

  • All types of batteries including farm fencing, automotive and portable batteries.
  • Torches, power tools and other small electrical devices.
  • Large household electrical items such as fridges, freezers, washing machines and electric ovens.
  • IT equipment – PCs, TVs, Monitors, phones.
  • Energy Saving Bulbs and other lighting equipment.
  • Along with any other household WEEE you may have.

If you miss the collection day remember that you can recycle your waste batteries and electrical waste at your local civic amenity centre, free of charge.
