We are pleased to announce that Bridgwater Town Council are now able to take donations for Mr Fixy – the repair and reuse initiative for Somerset Waste Partnership.
This Repair and Reuse initiative was launched by SWP in May 2022 and the Mr Fixy van, whose name was chosen by public vote, drives around the county, collecting donations, supporting community repair cafes and attending local events.
Recycling is great, but repair and reuse is even better: it is easy, saves money and helps save the planet. This is about loving your stuff for longer – if it has a plug or takes batteries, Fixy wants to help give it new lease of life.
All donated tech items are repaired, with all data wiped and then donated to local schools and groups.
The following can be handed into our reception –
- Mobile/Smart Phones
- PCs, Desktops, Towers
- Hard Drives / External disc drives
- Game Consoles and accessories
- PC Combo (All-in-one) type computer
- Digital cameras
- Scientific calculators
- Docking Stations / Port Replicators
- Freeview recorder or CCTV Devices
- Smart speakers /smart watches
This includes, if relevant, power supply, AC adaptor and ancillary accessories to allow re-use.
Our reception is open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm
You can find more information on the Mr Fixy initiative via the Somerset Waste Partnership website.
