Recycling for Charities and Community Organisations
One of the many questions facing all community and voluntary sector managers is how to manage and create space while safely removing and recycling surplus or redundant equipment including metal, electrical and electronic items?
This might include kitchen appliances, lamps, bulbs, batteries, computers, monitors, cables, keyboards, photocopiers, servers, chargers, metal cabinets or racking. The list is really endless and once it builds up it takes up resources.
Recycling is crucial to our world today and taking small steps can have significant benefits for the environment. By taking a lead you can ensure recycling becomes a natural and important part of your organization’s life.
