Ways to re-use & recycle

Are you looking for ways to re-use & recycle more at home? 

Getting rid of an item? Have a think about if you could re-use it by repairing it or upcycling it. If you don’t have a need for something anymore, does someone else want it? Why not have a clothes swap with friends or set up a give box at work?

For larger household items which are in good condition (and if it is a sofa or armchair has the fire safety tag attached) why not get the National re-use phone line to get a local re-use organisation to collect your item for free and pass it on to be used by someone else.
