Allthingseco and Passion for the PlanetLong term Green Hosting client and Make Hay friend Allthingseco has teamed up with the UK’s only green radio station Passion for the Planet, to help people all over the UK reduce, re-use and recycle and keep their waste out of landfill.

Together the two companies have developed a comprehensive directory of ways you can pass on your unwanted items, recycle computers, find a new home for your furniture, give paint to a group that needs it and much, much more.

You’ll find information on ink cartridge & mobile phone recycling schemes, local council recycling initiatives, business recycling details and resources to enable businesses to donate their unwanted stationery to local Scrapstores.

There are also details of Charity Shops across the country as well as swapping and auction sites. The directory also includes a list of places to buy recycled goods.
