Our first Bournemouth-based Win on Waste project launched in Southbourne on 17 September 2016 at Southbourne Library. We have Sarah Selby, one of our dedicated Recycling Ambassadors to thank for launching and co-ordinating this project.
Items donated on the day included: milk bottle tops, stamps, Tassimo discs, biscuit wrappers, jewellery, corks, baby food pouches, yoghurt pots and cleaning product items. Eight good causes benefitted from receiving the items.
Win on Waste Southbourne will be expanding thanks to a successful bid to the Green Goals fund. Starting in January and running until June 2017, the project will aim to encourage more people to save items from their waste and donate them each month at the Close Knit Yarn Cafe in Southbourne.
