A SCARBOROUGH woman has cleaned up a great prize after showing off her recycling credentials.

Mary Hicks, of Prince of Wales Terrace, won a Freeview recorder from Scarborough Council after a random draw of residents who booked an electrical item for collection.

The move coincided with Recycle Week and Mrs Hicks was presented with her prize by Donna Gaddass, Scarborough Council’s Recycling and Waste Education Officer and Alan Clarke, from RB Markets, who are working in partnership with the authority to boost recycling in the town.

Mrs Hicks said: “I had been meaning to book a collection for a while for two fridge freezers but hadn’t got round to it, so the prize draw was an incentive to get it sorted.

“It was really easy to book and everyone involved was really nice and helpful and I would definitely use the service again.

“I’m very happy to have won the Freeview recorder it’s a great prize, and it’s nice to know that my items will be reused or recycled.”

Anyone wishing to recycle items can leave them at an application bank at Sainsbury’s or contact the council on (01723) 232323 for more information.
