Waste Not Want Not success in Honiton
More than 500kg of unwanted items saved from landfill.
Bargain hunters turned out in force for a Waste Not Want Not event in Honiton which proved to be a great success.
A total of more than 500kg of homeware, garden equipment, furniture and other items were saved from landfill.
“I have worked very hard over the last few weeks to spread the word about this event, and these results just go to show how much can be re-used and recycled within the community,” says organiser Karen Berger.
“I would like to thank all those who did manage to come along on the day, and for the huge number of donations they brought with them.”
