Impressive results from Recycle Swap Shop!

We had a successful event last Saturday at Tilling Green, setting a new record for the amount of stuff brought. We were also only 1kg off our previous record for the amount taken, also set at Tilling Green.

Here’s the results:

  • 135 visitors
  • 674 kg stuff brought
  • 387 kg taken (57%)
  • 197 kg to charity shops (29%)
  • 45 kg recycled (7%)
  • 45 kg waste (7%)

Since the events started, way back in Oct 2012, we’ve got the following cumulative totals:

  • 4,027 visitors

  • 6.8 tonnes taken (64%)
  • 2.3 tonnes to charity shops (22%)
  • 0.9 tonnes recycled (8%)
