Facilities at the centre

Garstang is a Community Recycling and Reuse Centre which operates on a slightly different model to our other recycling centres and does not accept the full range of waste types that other centres accept.

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 Thursday to Monday; please visit to browse, buy and donate suitable goods for resale.

Items suitable for donation include good quality furniture (with fire labels if required), electrical items, bric-a-brac and other household items suitable for resale.

The recycling facility will accept the materials listed below:

  • Glass bottles and jars
