Since March 2019…
…we’ve raised £139.71 by recycling what would otherwise end up in landfill.
It may not sound like a huge amount, BUT, that money can buy:
Children diagnosed & treated for malaria
Litres of Clean Water
What happens to the waste?
All of the waste we collect is sorted, packed, and sent to ‘Terracycle’ to be recycled instead of being sent to landfill or incinerators.
Terracycle pay Chaffinch for this waste (by weight) and we can then use these funds to support our work with the children of Kibera.
