WHY is Newcastle City Council continuing to collect old TVs and other electronic waste as part of household waste collections? Why does the council not better advertise the fact that it also runs e-waste and chemical drop-offs? Placing advertisements in the public announcements section of newspapers is not going to work. Not many will read them.

People want to do the right thing but will not act if the information is not easily accessible. They need to know who to ask, where to go, when to go and what to take. Come on guys, you can do better.
