A quick google search shows that feather duvets and pillows are NOT recyclable today. If you contact your council they will say it should go in the general waste bin unless a local animal charity or homeless shelter wants it. Animal charities will usually say no to these, either due to them being unpractical or due to feather duvets not being vegan. Homeless charities will usually say no to them for hygiene reasons (hard to wash) or for being unpractical. The only solution seems to be General waste or Take apart and compost the feathers and rag the fabric. Is there a better solution out there? Is there anywhere in Norfolk that accepts more or less unlimited amounts of feather duvets and pillows?

It is cheaper to buy a new printer than reusing your old one. Is there a way to recycle them? Take them apart? /www.recyclingyourit.co.uk/ IT & Computer Recycling - Norfolk (uk-computer-recycling.co.uk) Computer Recycling Norfolk (pureplanetrecycling.co.uk) https://digitalactionnorfolk.org.uk/

Is there anywhere you can borrow items instead of buying in Norfolk? Example is this group Home - Borrow Don't Buy Plymouth (borrowdontbuy.co.uk) And this article https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/apr/24/library-of-things-borrowing-scheme-conquer-world

I have done very basic research and I found this amazing business in the US. Rareform UK - Re-purposing billboards into bags and accessories (billboardtobags.co.uk) Questions: What is available in the UK? Is anything available in Norfolk? Are there any crafters in Norfolk who could make use of this material?
