Have you ever been to a Reuse Shop at your local Recycling Centre?
All Recycling Centres (excluding Totnes*), have a shop where you can purchase good quality items for reuse. By reusing, you are giving items another life before they are safely recycled. Recycling is great, but reuse is even better!
The stock at each Reuse Shop changes daily and there are some great bargains to be found. All prices are set by the Recycling Centre operators and not Devon County Council and all money raised contributes to the running of the centre and its operating costs.
Reuse Drop Off Points
If you have items that you don’t need but they still have life left in them, then look out for the Reuse Drop Off point at your local Recycling Centre (excluding Totnes*). If you can’t see the drop off point, please ask the operative on site. Here you can drop off good items that will then allow them to be sold through the shops and gain another use.
Due to safety regulations, electricals can’t currently be sold through reuse shops nor can they be donated for reuse.
* At Totnes reusable goods are donated directly to the reuse charity Refurnish (please include link)
Due to space constraints Reuse Shops can’t hold on to items for you
