Sign up now for Pass It On Week

Get involved with the ‘Big Electric Amnesty’, part of this year’s Pass it on Week (11-19 March 2017), by donating your unwanted electricals to others.

14 Feb 17

Nearly 60% of people in the UK say they have an electrical item at home that they don’t use anymore. In Scotland alone 32% say they have an old smartphone tucked away, while a quarter admit to hoarding a digital camera they no longer use and 19% say they still have a computer or laptop they don’t need.

This Pass It On Week don't hoard your unwanted gadgets, gizmos and electricals – make the most of them by donating them instead!

Businesses, schools and community groups across the country are being encouraged to show their support. Simply sign up as an amnesty station online (applications are now closed) to receive a free pack – including an amnesty box in which to collect unwanted electrical and electronic items in working condition. After the week Zero Waste Scotland partners will collect the items from your location for free and will professionally delete any data left on devices.

Organising a swap-shop, pop-up lending library, or hosting a repair workshop are also fun and easy ways to get involved – and we’d love to hear what you have planned. Register an action for Pass It On Week.
