Christmas is on the way…

There ain’t no party like The Recycle Project party

We all know someone and a reason to get excited about this time of year. Simply put there is a lot going on this year at The Recycle Project. We have a huge selection of Christmas items coming over from our warehouse this week!

We have lots planned this festive season and we are getting prepped and ready to hit the ground running. Christmas is always busy, and if you’re looking for a gift then we have a shop full of pre-loved items that are ready to go to a new home. 

When we say pre-loved, we still have things that are brand new, still in the wrapper because that’s what people have sent to the household recycling centres across North Yorkshire. 


Believe in the Magic (of Christmas!)

We have already had an amazing reception to our Believe in the Magic campaign. Some amazing names, Browns of York, the Post Office in Fulford, Asda on Monks Cross and Fenwick’s in town. 

We are so thankful for such an amazing community that has already made such a difference to the gift boxes we will be giving out closer to Christmas. We have some guest appearances planned on local radio to promote the giveaway. 

We still  need your support in our efforts too. We are still looking for the most essential items like socks and underwear for both men and women. We intend these boxes to be delivered to the homeless and those most in need. Which means having provisions for them to keep clean, dry and warm is essential to help see them through the colder months of the year.

If you have any things that you think may be beneficial to our giveaway then we’d love to hear from you. If you could please send an email to and we can see how we can work together to bring a little Christmas cheer to our community this year. Keep posted across our social media for updates. 

Follow us on social media

Social media is important to us. It is how we connect with our audiences and share our campaigns and information on our free workshops and more. We have all our events on Facebook, our Instagram is alive with fun, bright pictures of what we are up to and selling, we also have YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Christmas stock is in!

We have been at The Warehouse last week, sorting through an incredible amount of things we think we be perfect for you (or someone else) this Christmas. Not only do we have gifts in our shop but we have practical things like decorations, Christmas trees, wreaths, lights and more. 

Whether you’re someone who likes to go all singing, all dancing or someone who prefers a minimalistic approach, we have you covered. We are busy today (Monday) that we are making moves to get everything set up for you so you can get ahead of the game and get ready. 

As well as a unique selection of decorations and gifts, we have an abundance of other products to make your house a home this Christmas. Some extra dinner table space, chairs, maybe some board games for after the Christmas dinner? 

It’s always work coming along to our shop on Yorvale business park because we have such an array of different things and they come and go so quickly that even we sometimes can keep up!

Decorations? Want to make your own in our FREE Arts & Crafts workshop

As you all know, we like to get crafty here at The Recycle Project. We find it is a great way to get creative and express yourself in a unique and engaging way. Margaret is a fantastic tutor and she is very patient and explains things incredibly well. As always, the workshops are set up in a way that anyone can attend, no matter your experience. 

This month we are busy creating wreaths and other Christmassy things that we compliment your home or make a fantastic gift for someone. We have recently changed our Arts & Crafts workshops now to start at 10am and run until 12.30pm. It would be great to have you along and support something special that we are putting a lot of effort into growing and providing a safe platform for people to come and express themselves. 

Join in our FREE Arts & Crafts Christmas special!

We are making wreaths and christmassy treats this month in our extended Arts & Crafts workshops (now starting at 10am!)
