I'm looking to recycle 6 or 7 mobile phone chargers and finding it very difficult. Many charities accept old mobile phones but I have yet to find anyone interested in old mobile phone chargers. I've already offered them via Freecycle a number of times. Any ideas?!

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden…
…well more like a thousand worms really. And they’re not exactly at the bottom of my garden either. But they’d probably like to be!

Anyone bought one of these power savers?
Does anyone know if they are avaliable to the public?
