Over the past few weeks we have been saving aerosol deodorant cans and these have been kindly stored for us at Rossmore Leisure Centre.  The good news is the oil drum is now full, so a big thanks to all our Win on Waste donors and users of the Leisure Centre for all their used cans.   Photo shows the dedication of three Leisure Centre staff as they stand in the rain in the dark to show off the full drum for our photo!
