Recycling in the Community January 2018 -- CRiB Chair Gina Beauchamp writes......

Last month we asked for compost to re-use at the War Memorial to improve the soil before planting up the permanent garden. We have received several offers of compost. Thank You. We will now have to organise a working party to dig it out and transport it, so any offers of help will be gratefully received! If you have any spare compost and could deliver it in bags that would be even better! We are also looking for any 3 litre black plastic flower pots that you may not need, please contact Gina on 01458 762296 or cribsomerset@gmail.com

There are plenty of websites where you can sell unwanted items on line, but if you have something you would like to get rid of for FREE and very quickly, then why not try FREECYCLE. this will keep unwanted articles out of landfill and save people money buying new items.

It is a free service; local groups are in Taunton and Chard but are used by people in the surrounding areas. There are several people in Curry Rivel who use it already. The way it works is that you must donate your article for free and post it on line through Freecycle .You will receive emails from people who would like to have your article. You chose who you would like to have it and email them a reply. They must collect it at a time suitable to yourself. At that point you can exchange phone numbers and give an address.

Items that have been recycled have included, buckets of old stones, old doors, kitchen units, bicycles, boats, liquidisers, old pallets, sofas, beds and mattresses are very much in demand .... The list is endless. You will receive emails of items that are wanted and offered as a weekly digest if you wish to.

Some people have even furnished a flat through Freecycle when they haven't had the money to do so. Not only will you keep items from landfill but you will be helping the community as well! Go to www.freecycle.org it will explain how to join up and you can read the rules. www.freelywheely.com is another local group but not as big as Freecycle.

Happy Recycling !
