A SOCIAL enterprise which recycles electronic equipment has successfully worked with Admiralty St Stores situated on Admiralty Street in Stonehouse and raised £100 for a local cause.

The social enterprise venture is a not-for-profit company based at the Belliver industrial estate and run by Sonia Hall and Alex Hosking.

Collectrical recycles electronic devices for schools, charities, pensioners, low-income families, and disadvantaged groups and communities.

“We donate apercentage of all profits to community organisations and schools.

“We also collect, for free, redundant electrical equipment from city businesses and refurbish them and re-sale them, or donate equipment to groups and families.

“What we can’t refurbished gets broken down and recycled, and does not go to landfill.

 

“Admiralty St Stores on Admiralty St in  Stonehouse use our services for their electrical disposal and nominated St Georges Primary Academy as their choice for  a financial rebate.
“Admiralty St Stores have also took it upon themselves to convince local residence to use Collectrical services rather than sending to landfill which has resulted in the community raising £100 for it’s local school.”
