Reduce

Consider online streaming or purchase a digital copy.

Reuse

Before you throw anything away why not see if it can be reused or upcycled? There are lots of ways this can be done:  

Reuse shop

Staffordshire recycling centres have a reuse area where items in good condition can be donated where they will be taken to the reuse shop located on the Cannock Recycling Centre. 

Charity shops

Charity shops accept a wide variety of items. Please contact your local charity shop for more information on what they can accept. A number of charities in Staffordshire will happily collect your unwanted large household items if they are in good condition. 

Reuse networks

Reuse networks such as Freecycle, Freegle and Ecobees allow members to advertise goods for reuse or sharing through local groups and forums. Membership and advertising is free and everything offered must also be free. 

Sell

There are a variety of online selling websites. Other options are advertising in the local paper, or notice boards in a newsagents or some supermarkets. If you have quite a few items why not consider a car boot sale?

Upcycle

How about being creative and turning an old item into something stylish?  Old CDs and DVDs make great bird scarers to protect the vegetable garden.

Recycle

Staffordshire's recycling centres accept CDs and DVDs and should be placed in the mixed media bin. 

Recovery

CD's and DVDs can be placed in your household general waste bin or taken to the recycling centre. Waste placed in the residual waste skip will be sent to one of Staffordshire’s energy recovery plants.
