From clothing to furniture, there are lots of options for rehoming your unwanted items!
Community Reuse Groups
Refurnish Devon has been running its own furniture and appliance reuse projects to collect reusable items for resale at low cost to people on low income in Teignbridge, Torbay, South Hams, West Devon, Mid Devon, Exeter and Plymouth.
Recycling in Ottery (RIO)
RIO is a charity serving the local community by selling a wide range of pre-loved goods at affordable prices with profits going back to the community.
Proper Job, Chagford
Proper Job sells everything from baths, crockery and clothes to garden furniture and building materials at a fraction of their original cost, meaning you not only save money but also go some way to leading a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
Charity shops can usually take a whole range of items that are in good condition; clothing, bric-a-brac and even electricals*.
*Not all charity shops will be able to take electrical items, so please call ahead to check before donating.
Library of Things
Library of Things are community-run services where you can borrow items that are used on an infrequent basis such as hedge trimmers, drills or sewing machines for a small fee (through membership).
There are also toy libraries where you can hire toys and more informal beach toyboxes.
Scrapstores are community enterprises that collect off-cuts and surplus materials, usually from factories and businesses, for reuse in activities such as education, play and arts and crafts.
