Types of waste accepted

Reuse shop

The reuse shop accepts donations and sells bric-a-brac, electrical goods, furniture, spare parts, bits'n'bobs and a whole range of other pre-loved bargains. The shop is open at the same time as the recycling centre; please visit to browse, buy and donate suitable goods for resale.
