Where do I take my stuff?

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

As we clean up our homes, we find items that we don’t know how to dispose of safely. We know it shouldn’t go in the garbage but where does it go? For more details, contact the City of London( for those in the London area) for a copy of a Waste Reduction & Conservation Calendar for your zone. Outside of London, contact your city for instructions. #envirodepots #recycling #recyclingideas
