A number of free collections have been organised by WEEE Ireland and the county council throughout Galway in recent weeks.
Another collection at Oughterard last Saturday resulted in 26 tonnes of waste being dropped off, and 22 tonnes was gathered at a collection in Casla before that.
A big thank you to everyone who recycled their e-waste with us in Oughterard last Saturday – a whopping 26 tonnes of #WEEE was collected!
