NORTH Somerset residents are being encouraged to recycle unwanted or broken electrical equipment rather than throwing it away.

The majority of electrical waste ends up in landfill because of its hazardous toxins that contaminate soil and water.

North Somerset Council aims to raise awareness and let residents know about the opportunities to take it instead to their nearest recycling centre.

North Somerset Council's executive member for the environment, Councillor Carl Francis-Pester, said: "We are committed to reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and this initiative will hopefully help us all better manage our electrical waste at this busy time of year.
