REPIC unveils 'Powering Communities' campaign

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

As part of its latest ‘Responsible Recycling’ initiative, not-for-profit Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) producer recycling scheme, REPIC is launching a ‘Powering Communities’ campaign. This aims to give community groups, schools and good causes from 10 regions, the chance to each win £500 worth of vouchers for new electrical products.

The ‘Powering Communities’ campaign is being rolled out by REPIC to mark the 10th anniversary of the Government’s WEEE Directive which was designed to encourage and regulate the collection, reuse, recycling and recovery of WEEE. The scheme is using this anniversary to celebrate its long-term partnerships with 10 selected local authorities across the UK, all of whom REPIC said it has enjoyed working with to meet collection targets and encourage responsible recycling of unwanted electrical items.

The total prize pot of £5,000 will be split across the 10 preselected UK regions and is open to any local community group, school, or good cause - such as not-for-profit organisations and registered charities. They simply need to answer two questions: “What electrical product do you need and how will it will make a difference?” Followed by: “What is the name of the REPIC Robot mascot?”

Mark Burrows-Smith, CEO of REPIC, said: “We’re proud to have collected and treated over two million tonnes of WEEE to date and hope that the Powering Communities campaign will encourage people to think about responsibly recycling their old electricals, particularly when they purchase new ones. It’s great to team up with local councils and we’re looking forward to receiving the entries.”

To enter, complete the online form via REPIC’s Responsible Recycling website The closing date for applications is 19 June 2017. The prize awarded will be a £500 Amazon voucher. All eligible applications will be considered - full details and terms and conditions are available on the website.
