It’s no secret that children quickly grow bored of toys and constantly buying more gets expense. So on Wednesday 7 December we invited local little ones (and their mums and dads) to bring their old toys along to Dagenham Library where they could be swapped for alternatives.
The Toy Swap was hosted by our waste minimisation team, as part of our Slim Your Bin campaign, to encourage families to reuse toys rather than bin them. The event saw a number of families come along to trade their old toys for new ones just in time for Christmas. It was such a success that we’re looking to host more in the future.
