We’re on the way back!

After an extended break that we didn’t quite intend to be so long, Win on Waste is finally on its way back!

We’re delighted to be able to let you know that our waste collection sessions in Wimborne (Allendale Centre) and at Ashley Road (inside Ashley Road Co-op) will go ahead on Saturday 12th June.

Each session will run from 10.30-12.00, and we’d ask you to please bear with us as we adjust to our Covid safety measures – which include wearing a mask, social distancing and asking that your items are sorted before you arrive on the day. This will help us keep everyone moving in and out of the session quickly, and will help our volunteers in moving the waste items on after the session.
