Birmingham Recycling Network

Birmingham recycling network is a co-operative social enterprise.

We aim to work with Birmingham City Council and businesses to intercept the re-useable and re-cyclable waste that would otherwise go to landfill.

We believe that a collective of individuals and enterprises in the City of Birmingham is a much stronger entity to help the City effectively deal with the 3R’s, build job opportunities, research and innovate.

All of our members below exist to reduce waste: please contact any or all of them if you have waste that could be re-used or recycled:

Birmingham FreegleFreegle exists only to stop usable items being sent to the tip.  If you have an item you no longer need, join Freegle and offer it to someone else for free.  If you need an item – come to Freegle and ask if anyone has one they no longer want.
