DOZENS of tonnes of electrical items have been recycled as part of an initiative to limit the amount of waste equipment going in to landfill.

There are further sessions at Thetford Bridge Street car park (Wednesday August 4), Watton Queens Hall car park (Tuesday August 10) and East Harling recreation ground (Tuesday August 17). They are all from 7am-3pm.
