Exmouth & Exeter recycling centres start selling discarded electrical items

Thrown-away flatscreen televisions and vacuum cleaners are among electrical items now being sold at recycling centres in Exmouth and Exeter for the first time.


Safety-checked and function-tested devices have been added to the re-conditioned stock of low-cost shops at some tips – and even come with a 30-day guarantee.

The new scheme to give the discarded products a fresh lease of life comes following public demand for the popular ‘re-sale’ outlets to expand their offering.

Knowle Hill Recycling Centre in Exmouth and Pinbrook Recycling Centre in Exeter are among five across the county taking part in the initiative.
