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

4,615 individual items such as DVDs, CD's & Books
89,200 Ring Pulls
