Although we have not been able to run any sessions since March, you may have some items that we previously collected at home. If you have a long list of items, please get in touch with us and we can try and point you in the right direction.
Otherwise our most popular waste streams, with best places to look or to take them are listed below:
Crisp Packets – Check for a list of charitable and private collectors still looking for crisp and snack packets.
Milk Bottle Tops – New Forest Mencap are still taking these for fundraising
Coffee Pods – Unfortunately, we will no longer be taking these items at all, but they can be dropped off at Point2Point Transport, Unit 10 Forest Close, Ebblake Industrial Estate, Verwood, Dorset BH31 6DE – the collection point is open 24 hours a day.
Aluminium Foil – Dorset Reclaim is still collecting foil, which can be dropped at any of their depots. Check their website for depot addresses.
A new version of the We Need That! Directory is also due out shortly…
Huge thanks to all those donors who have continued to contact us about their collected waste, and to ask when our sessions might be able to get up and running again.
At the moment, we don’t expect to be able to start Win on Waste sessions up again until the new year, but we are working hard in the background to look at the best items to collect and the range of charities we wish to support moving forward.
Our most important bit of news is that from January Ideas2Action will be known as Win on Waste.
As Win on Waste proved to be our most enduring project, we have changed our name and focus towards promoting reuse and recycling, but will still have a firm emphasis on building community and benefitting local people and charities.
Alongside this change, we have already started the switch over to becoming Win on Waste on our social media, so if you already follow Ideas2Action we’d be grateful if you could use the links below to begin following our new accounts.
We are also really excited to launch a new website in January to reflect these changes.
As with all of our activities, none of this could happen without the support of our fantastic Ambassadors and volunteers, so we offer thanks to them for their continuing support.
