A Glossop recycling centre is offering you the chance to be quids in by bringing them any broken or unwanted electricals in the New Year.

From January 2, you can take a wide range of household appliances – from hairdryers and hedge-trimmers to fridges and TVs – to the Melandra Road site and receive a golden ticket in exchange, with 15 cash prizes of £100 up for grabs.

After picking up a ticket from staff at any of Derbyshire County Council’s nine recycling centres, you can type in your unique ticket number online at and find out if you’re an instant winner. The more items you recycle, the more tickets you’ll get.

Cllr Paul Dunn, DCC’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said: “If every household in Derbyshire took just one electrical item it would mean more than 333,000 appliances being recycled, saving precious metals and other valuable materials they contain as well as saving council tax-payers’ cash.”
