Reusing unwanted items
Before you throw away any unwanted items, consider if they can be reused by someone else.
There are many web-based, non-profit making organisations that match people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them.
Havering Freegle (Formerly Havering Freecycle)
Havering Freegle is a web-based, non-profit making organisation, that matches people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them. The goal is to minimise waste by promoting reuse.
Aimed primarily at charities and businesses and working in a similar way to Freegle, Globechain allows you to advertise your unwanted items so that other businesses/charities/organisations can offer to take them from you.
