Hope to see you there.
Give or Take Events
These are pop up shops with a difference- everything is free.
The aim is to help people give away things they no longer need and take away things they do. By participating people are helping prevent waste going to landfill. You don't need to bring anything- feel free to just take.
So please bring goods to a Give and Take event when you have been emptying your cupboards. Look out all those books, toys, cd's, garden tools, ornaments and household goods you no longer need that are taking up space and are still in perfectly good, usable condition.
Uffculme Green Team Give and Take Events
Give or Take at Tiverton Market
Give or Take - 31st Oct to Nov 1st 2013
Another very successful Give Or Take event well supported by Givers, Takers and helpers.
We were very pleased with the generosity of people happily donating things rather than throwing them away
- and into landfill. The delight of the Takers was also obvious along with the frequent surprise of being told
everything is free.
Alongside this event we put on the first Mixed Plastic Recycling Collection.
Apart from cloudy milk bottles and carrier bags, which are collected by the local council, the rest of the plastics that
we throw away represent the majority of the bulk left in our rubbish bins that end up in landfill.
Mixed plastics can be recycled and reprocessed.
On Friday 1st Nov we collected 5 large dumpy bags (one metre square each) from householders in Tiverton that
went to Peninsula Recycling in North Devon. We hope to organise regular collections in the new year.
