Bin To Win in Brighton
by Brighton Council
Centacare Evolve Housing’s Community Wellbeing team partnered with Brighton Council to again run Bin To Win in the Brighton municipality in September. Bin To Win provides an opportunity for the community to remove their waste for free while learning about recycling, which means less rubbish will end up in landfill.
This year’s event was run in Gagebrook at Cris Fitzpatrick Park. Close to 145 carloads of waste were removed from the community, filling three skip bins in just an hour and a half. Hundreds of tyres were removed along with over 30 whitegoods. Batteries, paint tins, metals and e-waste were all recycled and disposed of in a safe manner.
Centacare Evolve Housing would like to thank Zac and the team at Degree C for attending the event to degas all white goods as they were dropped off. This event was made more meaningful by Gwen from Brighton Council sharing her knowledge, making the event more than just a rubbish removal point.
Thank you also to the amazing volunteers and everyone who came along to the event to remove their waste, especially those who rallied together to help others who couldn’t attend.
