If you love recycling, hate wasting things and are looking for a new way to do more for your local community, then Win-On-Waste is for you.

Each month, save ordinary household items that would normally get thrown in the bin or the recycling, and donate them to local charities, community organisations, schools, faith groups and artists.

Win On-Waste sessions are run by Ideas2Action, a small charity that runs community recycling projects across Bournemouth and Poole. They take place in Canford Heath, Creekmoor, Kinson and Southbourne. Once a month residents in these areas are asked to save specific items from their waste (e.g. milk bottle tops, biscuit wrappers, printer cartridges, deodorant cans) and donate them at a given venue.

You can take part by saving up your waste to take along to the sessions and benefit some good causes. Or if you would like to see a Win-On-Waste event in your community then get in touch with Ideas2Action who can help you on your way.
