Press Release   •   Feb 19, 2013 07:52 GMT

Online recycling search engine has smashed through its milepost of 20,000 listed recycling locations in the middle of February, making it even easier to find somewhere to take your rubbish and other unwanted items. lets you search thousands of places to recycle across the UK, including local recycling banks, charities and businesses, for all manner of things: be it a pair of shoes or a tin opener or anything between and beyond.

The website was founded by Paul Bearman and born out of a need for easily accessible information on what items he could and couldn’t recycle.

“It’s fantastic that we’ve hit this milestone, as we are constantly expanding our recycling location information,” said Paul.

“The great thing with is that anyone can add to our searchable database, keeping the information constantly up to date and relevant.”

With a European household recycling rate target of 50% by 2020, aims to play its part by making it easy for people to find out what they can put where.

Paul said: “I believe the more information we all share with each other the easier it makes it to get everybody recycling more. I look forward to reaching 30,000 locations in the future!”
