Residents of West Oxford are invited to our Spring Bring & Take event on Saturday 10th May 2014 at West Oxford Community Centre from 10.30am – 12.30pm.
Bring goods from 10.30am to 11.30am only and take goods anytime from 10.30am. No goods will be accepted after 11.30am. Items for the Bring & Take must be genuinely re-usable, clean and in good condition. For larger items please bring a photo/description and your contact details. Small electrical items will be PAT-tested for safety.
We run the Bring & Take events twice a year to help West Oxford residents reduce, re-use and recycle. By reducing the amount of goods we buy, swapping them when we no longer need them and recycling what’s left over, we reduce the amount of stuff going to landfill, reduce our community’s carbon emissions and save money at the same time – and that includes helping to keep our council taxes down. In past Bring & Takes we have recorded around 1,000 items swapped which is a significant contribution to reducing our community’s carbon footprint. The most popular items swapped are usually books (accounting for about 25%), followed by clothes and soft furnishings (approx. 20%) and toys/games/sport items (17%).
As usual there will be additional activities around the Bring & Take including an activity for children. Further details will be posted when they have been finalised.
