Our focus is on local charities and community organisations that benefit from our work. After all, it's the local people that take their time to collect, sort and deliver the waste that we box up and despatch. Twice a year we ask for ideas on who would benefit from a donation in either Spring and Autumn. Since 2011 we have raised over £50,000 (April 2021).
Right at the start we made the decision not to donate to schools or colleges. There are too many of them and they all have their own funding raising 'Friends' groups supporting them. Many of the Schools, Academies and Colleges have signed up to the various Terracycle schemes. There are a number of waste streams which are no longer available, for instances we are the only West and East Sussex collector of Tassimo coffee pods.

£7,000 to local groups plus £500 sent to SAFE (Saving Abandoned Fly-grazing Equines) so £7500 in total. Payments were sent out in June 2021.
