THE fourth annual Street Re:Cycle event is taking place on the streets of South Bank this weekend.

On Sunday, September 17 from 11am until 3pm people in the area can get rid of unwanted possessions and pick up previously owned items that others no longer want. The community-wide "yard-sale" takes place in front and back yards around the area and is organised the reduce waste, promote reuse and encourage neighbourliness.

To date, 29 households have signed up and this year a GoodGym team will be stationed at the junction of Bishopthorpe Road and Scarcroft Road from 12pm-3pm, and its members – who combine running with good deeds with voluntary work – will be available to help out, run errands and act as “porters”, carrying items home for people. They can be called on the day on 07473 933335.

A map and list showing participating households can be viewed on the Planet South Bank website and Facebook page, with printed copies available from Sainsburys on Bishopthorpe Road.
