Is Eco-Earth: Operation CleanUp live yet?
‘Not yet. All the ground work is in place. However we need a massive warehouse in order to process the huge amount of waste we intend to recycle. That is why we have launched a campaign to raise the funds required. To make Eco-Earth: Operation CleanUp a reality.’
What can I recycle through you?
‘Everything the law will allow us to take, we will take it — and reward you points for it. Old paint, oil, broken mirrors, food waste — you name it. We take it. 100% of everything you donate to us will be recycled or reused.’
How do I recycle through you?
‘At the moment, Eco-Earth will only be accepting waste from the Warwickshire area. We want to be realistic and ‘test’ the water before we tackle the UK as a whole. Eventually we will be working with the councils to have them deliver the rubbish to us directly (hopefully bringing down council tax as well) for now, small villages will be given a 2,000 liter ‘bin’ where you can drop off the rubbish manually.’
How long will it take to get my points awarded to my account?
‘Roughly between 1 – 3 weeks.’
What will I be able to get for my points?
‘All our crafts, salvaged / repaired gear will be in our shop. Everything from laptops and TVs to clothes and tables.’
Do my points expire?
How do I sign up?
‘You can sign up to our service on our website, however we are not yet live. Once we go live full details will be posted on how you can get involved with us.’
How do you process things that can’t be recycled? (i.e. old paint)
‘We have a crafts center. Old paint can be processed into new paint and used in our crafts, old mirrors can be touched up into new mirrors — or used in crafts, spoiled milk & meat can be processed into diseal; while old carpets can be stripped down and compressed into bricks.’
Is Eco-Earth recruiting? How can I help?
‘We will be recruiting! But first we need to get the warehouse and bits of equipment we need to get Eco-Earth off the ground. In the meantime, we are still in the ‘work-in-progress’ stage of the project. When we do go live we will be looking for;
- Creative people to work in our crafts center
- Social media reps
