Ideas2Action: Actions Follow Ideas


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.  In the current issue there are 39 organisations and 7 individuals looking for any number of items from a list of 87; everything from aerosol deodorant cans to wrapping paper. Read the latest issue We Need That Nov-Dec 2017 here.

There are currently 11 regular monthly Win on Waste sessions running in the following areas: Broadstone, Canford Heath, Creekmoor, Hamworthy, Livability Holton Lee, Oakdale, Southbourne, Turlin Moor, Westbourne, West Howe and Wimborne.  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.   Two new ones will be starting early in 2018 and there are the occasional one off sessions held e.g. Parkstone.

We are often asked what happens to the items donated at the sessions.  For the answer see What happens to the donations leaflet
