Recycling’s not just old cans, tins and paper!

February 20, 2006 at 4:39 pm

As well as the traditional items that most people are by now used to throwing in the recycling sack, box or bank, there are many other household items that can be recycled.

You may have items that are no longer any use to you in your home but this by no means classes them as ‘rubbish’.

Rather than throwing out old electrical appliances or furniture or getting the council to collect them, send them to a good home by contacting the Furniture re-use Network (FRN).

The FRN have over 5000 people working to collect unwanted items free of charge, which they then repair where necessary and pass onto low income families who are unable to afford to buy these items new.

1.5 million items are reused and passed on every year so think twice about dumping that sofa or taking that old telly to the tip. Contact the Furniture re-use Network.
