More information about the tip can be found on the Coventry Council website. The advise is to consider whether an item could be reused by others, promoted on the freecycle or taken to a charity shop before bringing it to the Coventry tip. With current Covid restrictions in place however seeking alternatives may be difficult and demand at the local tip may increase.
Look out for non-profit or local neighbourhood groups online such as Freecycle – these are good places to sell, swap or give your pre-loved items. Other organisations, such as Furniture Donation Network, will directly give your items to someone in need.
“Good-quality unwanted items can be taken to a local charity shop or furniture recycling projects, which are starting to open again. You can also post them on internet sites such as Freecycle or Gumtree.”
When a shadowy stranger is murdered in Mr Yim’s Soup House, a diner in the solar system, traffic cop Lucha Flax decides to play detective.
The 22-year-olds came up with the idea shortly after graduating from the University of Southampton last summer.
Using websites like Freecycle and chipboard donated by Construct Scenery they spent about a month building the set.
They assembled a cast and crew of 20, some of whom had to leave the set for a day to attend their graduation ceremonies, with actors, comedians, artists, film makers and musicians giving their time for free.
