Ideas2Action: Actions Follow Ideas


Ideas2Action is a registered charity no 1170422 and we run community recycling projects across Bournemouth and Poole.

Our We Need That! recycling directory  shows people that items they are throwing into their rubbish/recycling bins could be needed by  voluntary organisations, faith groups, children’s centres, playgroups or individuals.  In the current issue there are 38 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.

From January 2018 there will be 11 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 to benefit good causes.

Our latest Annual Report 201/17 gives an overview of our achievements over the past year. Ideas2Action Annual Report 16-17
