Reuse Essex
A comprehensive Directory of Community Groups and Charities in Essex involved in Recycling and Reuse can be found on the Reuse Essex site operated by the Essex Community Recycling and Reuse Network (ECORRN).

The Freecycle network is a vibrant community of individuals and local groups who give away and request all manner of items that are no longer wanted. Essex has a number of local groups. To join your local group follow the links below:

Essex Business Waste Exchange
Whilst Businesses are free to use this site to dispose of a range of items, a special Business Waste Exchange will be launched in Essex shortly. This will allow you to dispose of items such as cardboard, metals etc.

Donate a PC
This is a free 'matchmaking' service for individuals and organisations to donate un-needed hardware (computers, printers etc) to UK charities, not-for-profit organisations and educational establishments (hardware only - not software). It is primarily for those with only one or two items to donate and/or who can not use a suitable recycling organisation. However they also have a comprehensive list of organisations that have larger quantities of computer equipment to donate to charities.

Charity Shops
For a comprehensive directory of Charity Shops take a look at the Association of Charity Shop website.
