Recycled electrical goods up for grabs for SW charities

Charities in the Southwest of England could benefit from free electrical goods that could help them with their work, thanks to the generosity of a recycling company.

The Electronic Waste Company, based in Cornwall, is asking for registered charities to come forward if they need anything from computers and office equipment to TVs and household appliances.

Charities will be expected to put forward a case outlining why they require the equipment.

Damian Lambkin, CEO of the company said: "We know that there are a large number of charities out there who are feeling the economic pinch.

"We want to do what we can to help, and that's why we're offering to provide this second-hand equipment free of charge."

The equipment will be given a full warranty and can include computers, monitors, IT peripherals, TVs, household and commercial refrigeration.

Mr Lambkin added: "This will all be top quality, refurbished kit which would otherwise be sold either online or via our retail premises.

"Although we're pleased to be helping out charities, we cannot provide unlimited items, so we're asking that charities tell us why they need the equipment and we'll try and help those in the greatest need."

To benefit from the free equipment, organisations must be registered as a charities or community interest companies.
