A Lancing based recycling project to reduce what goes into landfill and, as a bonus, raise money for local charities in the Adur and Worthing District. Through a UK company, Terracycle, Recycling in Lancing are able to recycle unusual household items that most people would not think twice about throwing in a bin. Check out their Facebook page for a list of what they can take and where their recycling points are.
Re-Loved is a Christian charity helping to provide essential household furniture to people in desperate need of help. The project’s aim is to serve the local community by sourcing, restoring and providing furniture and household items to people in emergency need, free of charge.
CARE takes redundant computers donated by businesses, schools and other institutions here in UK, prepares them for use by deleting the existing data to DOD (Department of Defence) standards and reloads the appropriate software prior to shipment to Ghana. CARE takes redundant ICT equipment and uses this opportunity not only to help school children in Ghana with their study of ICT and access to PC’s in general, but also to help the environment by recycling (using approved and acceptable international standards) and raising environmental awareness.
Fix It Workshop is a man in a shed, on a mission to save your useful appliances from heading to the scrap yard. He believes that most things can be repaired; he’ll certainly give it a go, anyway! Too many household items are condemned to the bin without thorough investigation into whether they can be repaired. Get in touch for repair help and advice.
They welcome donations of redundant and surplus equipment (powerchairs and mobility aids), working or not, as they can use their workshop capability to restore items for resale. Martin from Freedom Power Chairs is sometimes at our Repair Café and happy to check out your mobility equipment, for free and advise on repairs etc. You can also contact him via email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit him at his workshop in Worthing.
A Worthing grant making charity that supports local organisations. Funds come from 14 Community Chest labelled textile recycling bins that Worthing Borough Council have placed around the town.
