A trail is going to take place at the Cherry Orchard Recycling centre in Kenilworth to increase the number of electrical items separated for reuse and recycling.
Recycling more electrical items will ensure precious metals are captured and avoids climate change emissions that would result from mining materials and manufacturing new products.
This will start will start in February.
In some cases Reusable items can be dropped off at the Age UK reuse shop, with proceeds spent on local projects delivered in Warwickshire. The shop also gives local people access to very reasonably priced household goods, including electrical items which have been tested for safety.
For further information please go to the attached link or read the leaflet below which will advise you of the process being trailed and help us by doing your bit...…
In the main I believe that we all understand the impacts around the environment now and the impact of motor vehicles.
At this moment in time almost every manufacturer is working flat out and investing billons to find a long term sustainable solution that provides the same longevity as we have today but it takes time to refine, develop and deliver these solutions to make sure they are reliable and safe.
Make no mistake the automotive business WILL find a solution and in our area we are in the heart of that development with JLR, LEVC (Geely) Horiba Mira , Dennis Eagle and various specialist technology companies leading the way.
For example, JLR have just announced the following in conjunction with Northumberland NHS.
NHS Northumbria Foundation Trust has taken delivery of 700 Jaguar I Pace SUVs, which the healthcare organisation will lease to its public sector staff over the next three years
Excellent news, not just because they are made and developed in our area, but it also provides a real platform for the support & development of the technology required and will provide real data in terms of the issues raised above.
I (Cllr Wright) personally know many of the specialists working on these issues and they are some of the most dedicated people you would wish to meet and they will find a solution so next time you think negatively about the automotive sector think about all of the investment, dedication and focus already happening on OUR DOORSTEP by OUR COMMUNITY.

Any one who has had or been close to anyone who has suffered a stroke knows of the devastating effect on their life and those close to them. In Warwickshire we want fewer people to have strokes and those who do to have BETTER OUTCOMES meaning that they are less likely to have a disability.
To do this we need to improve our services and the way we invest the £3.1 million we invest in specialist rehabilitation.
To this end there is an extensive consulation document but we would like YOUR VIEW on our final proposals and you can do this online via the link below
Your input would be really helpful in developing and finalising our plans do deliver a top class quality service.
