Get Ready For Tuesday Tables! 

It’s that time of year when many of us are planning a spring clean or just want to clear some clutter, but what do you do with all those household items you no longer need but are still usable? 

Books, toys, bricabrac, bikes, furniture, clothes, tools, garden equipment, we all have items that we don’t use any more but are too good to throw away.  We keep meaning to do something with them but never get round to it.   

With charity shops still closed and recycling centres busy, why not take part in the new community swap known as Tuesday Tables? It’s literally right on your doorstep!

Tuesday Tables is a great way of giving your unwanted household items a new lease of life, and the more households that take part, the better.  On the designated Tuesday, simply put anything you no longer want on your doorstep, front garden, driveway or on a table so that local residents can take them for free.  Whether it’s a couple of items or a big clear out, it could be of use to someone else. 

When you’re out and about on your daily walk, why not stroll around your neighbourhood to see what your neighbours are giving away? You never know what you might find! 

Items need to be in good, clean and working condition and they must be free for people to take.  If you still have a few items left at the end of the day, bring them inside and try again next time. 

Tuesday Tables will be taking place on 6th and 13th April 2021 and anyone can take part.  If you’d like to join in, visit the Recycle Devon website for help on promoting the event, getting people involved and tips on staying covid safe. You can share on local Facebook groups to get more people involved or download a poster to display in your window to show you are taking part. 

It’s a convenient way to get rid of those items you no longer need whilst helping your neighbours and the environment! You may even bag yourself a great freebie or two as well!
