Note that our computer recycling operation has changed. Due to the diminishing demand for desktop computers we now only recycle flat screens,laptops, usb mice and usb keyboards. Please ring 0114 249 5522 or email should you wish to donate computers as we are not open every day. Thanks : )

At Access Space, people interested in art, design, computers, recycling, music, electronics, photography and meet more like-minded people, share and develop skills and work on creative, enterprising and technical projects.

We operate at a very low cost with a minimal carbon footprint, because we recycle donated computers and use free, open source software. We run drop-in activities and workshops, exhibitions and arts events and have opportunities for volunteering. We also run the Refab Space fabrication facility and an ethical web design service.

Recycle Day Video

Richard Bolam has created a time-lapse video of two days, documenting volunteers and staff re-using, re-purposing and recycling obsolete computer equipment.

The video was captured using Canon PowerShot compact cameras, time-lapse enabled with the open-source Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK).
