We Need That – Dorset

We were asked to produce a We Need That directory by Dorset Waste Partnership called We Need That – Dorset, specialising in organisations and collectors based in the Dorset Council area. We produced the booklet for the Dorset Council area but the project was not continued.

Recycling Awards

We held our fourth Recycling Awards on Friday 27 September 2019 in the Cattistock room at Poole Civic Centre. The aim for organising the Awards is to recognise all those people/organisations who go the extra mile when it comes to recycling.  In addition we use the opportunity to say a big thank you for our volunteers and the venues who support our Win on Waste sessions.

You can view our full report and photos of the event.

Hunt The House

This was an awareness-raising pilot project carried out on Canford Heath in Poole to show the importance of having visible house numbers to local residents.  The project was funded with a Community Grant from the Dorset Police & Crime Commissioner’s ‘Safer Dorset Fund’ and run by voluntary organisation Ideas2Action.

You can read the full project report here.

Pass on Plants

We received funding for Pass on Plants in January 2021 from the Wessex Water Foundation. The aim of the project was to combat social isolation among those who may be housebound or shielding, while also removing unwanted house plants from the kerbside recycling.
