Why Recycle

Environmental Impact

Recycling helps protect the environment. Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials all of which create air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

For Support 

We can utilise some of the new items donated to us by passing them on to our beneficiaries who are struggling financially. 

We may use items as part of our work at programs or events.

Generating Funds

Finally we may sell or recycle items to generate funds to support our the charity and our work.

Between April 2019 and July 2019 we recycled;

1,061 individual items such as DVDs, CD's & Books

18,100 Ring Pulls

12kg of Stamps

82 ink Cartridges

10 Gift Sets

83kg of Clothing (Glenrothes Only)

71 Craft, Tech and other similar items

From this you, our supporters have helped us;

- Keep these items from landfill

- Raise £1,016 in funds to support our work

- Generate stock of over 150 items which are now readily available to distribute to our beneficiaries as and when they are needed.
