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 new look We Need That! recycling directory is now available!  It shows people that items they are throwing into their rubbish/recycling bins could be needed by not-for-profit organisations or individuals We Need That June July August 2018  For those of you who may have items to throw away after a clear-out, or before a house move, please see our new Decluttering?

There are currently 13 regular monthly Win on Waste sessions running in the following areas: Barnabas (Rossmore area), Broadstone, Canford Heath, Corfe Mullen, Creekmoor, Hamworthy, Kinson, Merley, Oakdale, Southbourne, Turlin Moor, Westbourne 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.   There are also occasional one-off sessions held e.g. Parkstone.  See here for: June 2018 date for Win on Waste sessions

Our latest project is Win on Waste on Wheels.  This pilot project will give older, housebound people living in the Poole Town and Parkstone areas of Poole the opportunity to take part in a Win on Waste session even though they are physically unable to attend one in person.  Simon, our Co-ordinator and his team of volunteers will visit and collect items of waste to donate to good causes.

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

Here is a poster for a visual picture of the type of items we collect at Win on Waste sessions  Win on Waste picture poster
