Reuse Hub and community projects

Reuse hub

The Reuse 360 Hub 

The Reuse Hub is a project that takes donated reusable furniture and household items and gives them to families and individuals in the area who need them.

The project takes items from our recycling centres including items such as bedding, towels and children's clothes, stainless steel pots and pans, crockery, furniture and rugs.

We then work with Lancashire social care teams to rehome the items with the people in need across the county.

Our reuse projects 

As well as the reuse shops at Burnley, Preston and Garstang centres, we have several other reuse projects. 

We have bike reuse projects that mean instead of being scrapped, bikes are used again for their intended purpose.

Burnley recycling centre works with Burnley Together to reuse school uniform at their "Relove the Preloved School Uniform Shop" at Down Town, Charter Walk Shopping Centre, which is open Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4.30pm.

We also work with community groups and local charities to supply quality items they need from our recycling centres. We look for projects that provide social value as well as helping us to divert waste from landfill.

Supporting local organisations and charities

We're looking to support the work of  local charities and not-for profit organisations by supplying them with second hand (sometimes brand new) items we get at our recycling centres. The items should be used to support the aims of the organisation and show a real benefit for local people.

The sort of items we can provide include, but is not limited to: 

  • garden tools and planters
  • children's toys
  • winter coats
  • sleeping bags, duvets, blankets and cushions
  • furniture
  • bric-a-brac
  • toiletries
  • crockery, pots and pans
  • dog crates and beds
  • school uniform
  • pushchairs
  • highchairs
  • moses baskets
  • mobility equipment

If your organisation could make use of some of these items please complete the application form or email us for more information.

Whether it's part of the organisation's long term aims, or a one off project, tell us more about the scheme in your application.
