Win on Waste started life as a local recycling project from Ideas2Action in 2014. Our first session at Canford Heath began with a small selection of hard-to-recycle items being collected on behalf of local charities, and our network grew to 19 sessions that took 3,400 bags of recyclable waste out of landfill and kerbside collections between November 2019 and March 2020.

Currently, our Win on Waste sessions are suspended due to Covid-19, but we are still working hard to direct waste toward good causes with our Directories.

Although the list below features 17 sessions, as you will see from the map, we will be running three sessions in June (Wimborne, Ashley Road and Kinson). We hope, before long, to have our map full of pins again, as our sessions re-open!
