Sort

We sort the items we collect into the following Circular Categories:

  1. Reuse – ready to be resold by charitable organisations, or items in need of a little clean
  2. Repair – broken items (most are electronic), or broken items for which we receive all parts
  3. Recycle – rather invaluable items that could be repaired but this is unfeasible; items that are accepted at recycling centres as for recycling
  4. Upcycle – kept in-house by us, or donated to upcycling artists or to scrapstores
