I’ve been sent some info on a community recycling project that sounded like a great initiative worth sharing, particularly during these challenging times of funding and spending cuts.
Community Recycle is a new venture set up to help schools across the country receive a range of free goods and equipment that otherwise could have gone to waste, sitting in storage for years or be sent to landfill.
The initiative collects, coordinates and donates these overstocked, unsellable and second-hand items to primary and secondary schools across the UK, saving them money and improving their facilities.
Items include shade sails, post pads, fencing and outdoor furniture. The project was set up by A&S Landscape, firm that designs and manufactures canopies and storage structures for schools and public buildings.
Schools can easily apply for any of the available items by sending a request on the website aandslandscape.co.uk.
