What to do with DIY / Home Improvement Waste

When doing improvements at home there is always an element of waste created. This might be in the form of plasterboard, hardcore, old furniture, wood etc. Much of this can be recycled at municipal recycling centres and this is a good option, however you can go some additional good by using community recycling organisations. These are often social enterprises that support unemployed and young people. They also can often take this waste and re-use it rather than recycling it (this is better environmentally).

So where to find this community organisations? Thankfully there is a new website run by Waste Awareness Wales and Cylch that allows you to find your most local community recycling facility. Visit: http://banklocator.wasteawarenesswales.org.uk/search
