My name’s Chris Powell, but around these parts, I’m known as the pirate ‘Captain Rummage’. I run The Cone Exchange, my community recycling project in Starbeck, Harrogate. It’s really simple – I work with the local community turning trash into treasure.
How it works:
In short, people bring me their unwanted stuff and I put it to good use – like reselling it as craft material and using the proceeds to buy educational books and DVDs for schools. Or by collecting things like mobile phones, spectacles, stamps, holiday change and even printer cartridges, then giving them to charities like Oxfam who use them to raise money.
Three ways you can help:
1. Donate your 'trash' – just drop it off at 'Hairstop' in Starbeck or give me a call on the number below for more information.
2. Get your club or school involved in recycling with us and get games, books or craft supplies in return.
3. Come along and buy craft materials from our scrap store.
How to get in touch:
It’s easy: just give me a call on 07515 061 721 or send an email to: email@example.com
The Starbeck Cone Exchange is located at East Unit, Hookstone Park, Harrogate, HG2 7DB and is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am – 4pm, term time only. For appointments during the holidays please call.
