My milk float brings all the re-usable items to the yard…

Keep an eye out for the, Cardiff Student Union and Raise and Give (RAG) Milk Float - they're coming to Cathays and Roath this weekend (11th & 12th June) to collect your charity items.

With our trusty milk float and wheelbarrows we are collecting clothes, books, DVD’s, CDs, small electrical items, kitchen utensils and cutlery and un-opened food (not fresh) so have them ready for us when we come down your street. We will also door knock houses to encourage the use of the Green Zones around the city and to promote the extra rubbish and recycling collection dates; Saturday 18th, 25th June, 2nd July.

Any community volunteers; students or non-students who would like to come door knocking with us and on the collection run are more than welcome please just e-mail me

Green Zones located around all student halls and unions
Get it Out for Cardiff, now in its seventh year, is the Keep Cardiff Tidy, Cardiff Council initiative in association with Cardiff University, UWIC and Glamorgan University and Unions which helps Students to clear out their rubbish at the end of the academic year. The aim is to re-use and recycle as much of it as possible.

This scheme is open to all residents and we are putting a real focus on items that can be re-used by charities, there are ‘Green Zone’ collection points in Cardiff University, UWIC, Liberty Living and Victoria Hall student halls. Green Zones situated in the main reception area of Cardiff Students Union, in UWIC and the Atrium

Here's a list of the items we are collecting for re-use this year

-British Heart Foundation: Small electrical items such as kettles, toasters, printers, mobile phones, irons etc

-Fareshare: In date, un-opened foods (not fresh) eg. tins, packets etc

-Barnardos: Clothes, belts, shoes and bags. No duvets though please.

-Cardiff Council/ Media Bank: Books including textbooks, DVDs, CDs and tapes

-Kitchen bric-a-brac such as utensils and cutlery is being collected for (Raise And Give) (RAG) for resale at the Union this September.

Any items stored over the summer are being kept at Cardiff Self Storage who have kindly supported GIOFC 2011 by supplying a storage container.
