South Gloucestershire Council are running four sessions across the area including Thornbury, Patchway, Yate and Kingswood.

    @Bland_Media, Good point I guess it is a little set back out of the way for pedestrians. I wonder it it was a success? being a car driver I didnt think about this from a pedestrian point of view.

    The Sort It!* centre, at the end of Short Way, may be practical for vehicle owners, but it is hardly pedestrian friendly (in either its layout or its location). This amnesty clearly had the elderly and disabled particularly in mind, and would involve recycling without the additional consumption of petrol or diesel. Have a heart, guys!

    StanMor, I agree I am not really sure that there is need for it. After all if you can make your way to the drop off points then surly you can make your way to your local Sort-It Centre?

    I don't understand the need for such an 'amnesty'. If you go to the Sort-it centre you can drop off anything electrical, large or small, at any time (in opening hours of course). Such items are really worth recycling as they contain a variety of metals and rare elements that should never go into landfill.
