Join us in creating an Upcycling group in Totnes.
This move has been prompted by several local factors: the recent changes to the Totnes Recycling Centre (the resale area being removed in June 2012 and partly transferred to Refurnish), the threat of an incinerator plant between Buckfastleigh and Totnes, as well as the urgent need to look at ways to avoid waste and consume less by reclaiming, recycling, repairing and upcycling.
A joint TTT/FoE event about waste is taking place on June 27th - see event details here - and we will decide a date for our first meeting soon after that. If you would like to be informed and perhaps join the group, please email email@example.com
Our plan is to have much information available on the website, so we are happy to receive any relevant tips and info!
There is interest in creating a community-run, reclaimed wood store - which could be a joint project with the Building and Housing group. Mel Milne is checking interest and gathering ideas on this, so please contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate in any way.
