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
