The Hidden Treasure Hunt is giving schools the chance of winning £5,000 of Microsoft tech by encouraging their school community to bring any unwanted electricals hidden in their homes, into Currys stores to be recycled.
Tech plays a more important role in our lives today than ever.
It keeps us connected, fed, clean, healthy, educated, entertained, and productive.
However, replacing electricals and tech more often is making them the fastest
growing waste stream in the world and in the UK.
Many organisations can repair and refurbish your small electricals. Your grownups can ask the original manufacturer for a list of their authorised repair networks.
If nobody in your house wants it, pass it on. Charities can raise vital funds by selling your old electricals or giving them to people in need. Electricals will need to be prepared (personal data cleared, etc.) before they are passed on. You can find out more about safely removing data by visiting the link below.
If it has a plug, battery or cable, it can be recycled and turned into anything from life-saving equipment to children’s playgrounds. Find out how Currys recycle your electricals here. Find out other locations by visiting Recycle Your Electricals on the link below.
