These money free events enable people to give away things they don’t need or take things they do.

We work in partnership with Hackney council at these zero waste hubs. People can give items they don’t want any more and take items they do want – all for free.

By doing so, things are prevented from being thrown away and given a new lease of life. At each Zero waste event an estimated 2 tonnes of reusable goods are saved from landfill. Zero waste events also provide those on a low income with free access to household goods.

All our events are open to the general public. They are a great chance for people to get together, have fun, share knowledge, get rid of unwanted goods and save money.

Planned events are posted here and the Hackney Council website.
