Welcome to Win on Waste

Win on Waste is the new name for Ideas2Action!

We started Ideas2Action on 31 October 2013 and now have 6 trustees, 67 volunteers and one part-time member of staff.

Our first project in 2014 was Win-on-Waste – Canford Heath.  Following on from that we expanded our We Need That recycling directory into Bournemouth.  Since then we have gradually increased our project portfolio so we now have 16 monthly Win on Waste sessions across Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Corfe Mullen, Wimborne and a drop off point at Holton Lee.

Our We Need That directory has a sister directory called Decluttering?  We Need That which is aimed at people who are having a clear out and rather than take items to the tip or throw them in the bin, they can refer to the directory and offer them to a good cause.

As well as recycling projects in 2016, we ran Hunt the House: are your house numbers emergency friendly?  Funded by the Dorset Police & Crime Commissioner’s Safer Dorset Fund, this project ran as a pilot on Canford Heath in Poole and showed the importance of having visible house numbers so that the emergency services are able to find homes quickly and possibly even save a life.
