Where the items will go..

The items will be distributed by the London Reuse Network and sent to charities for the items to be reused by people who need them. This way, they reduce the overall amount of waste sent to landfill, and energy used for recycling.  London Reuse Network work with a large network of charities and reuse businesses including Bikeworks, give2give, and the Vine Project.
