Uni-Cycle is working with Universities to recover, reuse & recycle unwanted items left by students in halls & redistribute to its local community and new students.
About the project
Uni-Cycle is a non profit social enterprise working currently with the University of Salford to help reuse, recondition and recycle as many unwanted items left/thrown out by student within their Halls of residence.
In order to continue, Uni-Cycle is desperately seeking support to secure a storage and redistribution space so that it may operate fully and effectively.
Hannah Kavanagh, who is behind the scheme, worked with student volunteers to successfully recover over eight tonnes of useable items over the Summer 2014 from one site, which included: Over a quarter of a tonne of food, which was donated to LifeShare Greater Manchester:
Donations of bedding, which were made to Emmaus Salford:
And an additional 100 bags of clothing and miscellaneous goods, which were donated to the British Heart Foundation and raised over £100 for their local shop in Salford.
Uni-Cycle is hoping to rescue more items from landfill over the Summer 2015 and so need your help to fund a storage and redistribution space.
Premises has been identified in the local area to Salford (where the scheme is ongoing) and it is hoped that with your backing, we will be able to secure.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND SUPPORT
