Win on Waste

"To enhance the lives of people in BCP by running projects to benefit the environment & local people."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Win on Waste has been helping people in the BCP and Dorset Council areas get smart with their waste and recycling since 2013. In the early days we were known as Ideas2Action and our first session at Canford Heath collected just 2 items of common, yet hard-to-recycle waste.

Within three months, that first session had had grown to collecting 6 items and had received 5000 items which would have either gone into landfill or been collected in kerbside recycling.

Since 2014, the network of Win on Waste sessions has grown to 17 sessions on a monthly basis, collecting a wide range of items and either responsibly recycling them in aid of our charity, or diverting items to worthwhile causes in our local area.

From November 2019-March 2020, we collected over 3500 bags of waste and projected that would have risen to nearly 10,000 bag by the end of the year, if not for Covid-19.

Our plan now, is to help local people divert their waste themselves to charities and waste collectors through our We Need That directory, and then re-open our sessions as soon as it is safe to do so.

What We Do

At present, we are unable to collect in person, which has been a huge change for our charity and our enthusiastic Ambassadors.

We are able to help people direct that waste they have at home via email, or social media and using our We Need That directory on our website.

Our current plan is to begin collection sessions again when it is safe to do so.
