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.  We are currently giving it a revamp and hopefully making it easier for you to use.  In the meantime here is the current issue We Need That Jan-Feb 2018

There are currently 12 regular monthly Win on Waste sessions running in the following areas: Broadstone, Canford Heath, Creekmoor, Hamworthy, Holton Heath (Livability Holton Lee), Oakdale, Southbourne, Turlin Moor, Westbourne, West Howe and Wimborne.  Plus new one Barnabas Win on Waste.  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 occasional one-off sessions held e.g. Parkstone.  See here for: March 2018 dates 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.  Well done to Canford School for being the first to join and to  Winton Primary School for being the second.

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
