Proper Job is a charity run recycling center based in Chagford, Devon.
Launched in 1995, Proper Job is one of the UK’s first community reuse centres and they are based on the northeast edge of Dartmoor in Devon. Their aim is to keep reusable items from going to waste by putting them on sale.
Everything from baths, crockery and clothes to garden furniture and building materials can be bought by you at a fraction of their original cost, meaning that people not only save money but also go some way to leading a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. They are known locally for their high quality compost and are a distribution point for National community Repaint scheme.
They committed to principles of sustainability and educating to conserve resources. They run training sessions and skill sharing workshops on a range of topics from upcycled garden planters to electrical repair workshops and recycled Christmas decorations. These help promote the benefits of reusing, recycling and reducing in todays throwaway culture.
They offer a delivery and collection service and cover a radius of approximately 12 miles from Chagford. They have also now expanded and have a boutique style shop selling vintage items and a café selling wholesome locally sourced food!
