Ideas2Action is a registered charity no 1170422 and we run community recycling projects across Bournemouth, Poole, Wimborne and Holton Heath.
Our We Need That! recycling directory shows people that items they are throwing into their rubbish/recycling bins could be needed by not-for-profit organisations or individuals. We are currently giving it a revamp and starting a new directory called Decluttering? We Need That. This will be aimed at people who may have items to throw away after a declutter, so rather than them put the items in the bin or take them to the tip, they can look in the directory and offer the items to the organisation who requires them. While the revamping is taking place please look at the current issue We Need That Jan-Feb 2018
There are currently 12 regular monthly Win on Waste sessions running in the following areas: Barnabas (Rossmore area), Broadstone, Canford Heath, Creekmoor, Hamworthy, Holton Heath (Livability Holton Lee), Oakdale, Southbourne, Turlin Moor, Westbourne, West Howe and Wimborne. A new one Corfe Mullen Win on Waste launches in June. Each month local residents have the opportunity to save items from their waste and donate it at given venues in these areas to benefit good causes. There are also occasional one-off sessions held e.g. Parkstone. See here for: May 2018 date for Win on Waste
Thanks to interest from schools enquiring about our Win on Waste sessions we have started our School Win on Waste Network. Schools currently in the Network are Canford School, Winton Primary School, Damers First School and St Michael’s Middle School.
We are often asked what happens to the items donated at the sessions. For the answer see What happens to the donations leaflet
