Why reuse?

Recycling is great - reuse is better!

When you reuse an item, you are helping to:

  • save more of the earth’s resources, which will no longer be needed to make new items
  • save the energy that would otherwise be used to process recycling items
  • save items from ending up in landfills or recovery facilities
  • improve air quality and health for our residents, by reducing the number of vehicles on the road transporting waste.

Great bargains for you and a cleaner and greener environment - win-win!


In addition to providing great bargains for local residents, your reusable items are also donated to community groups, schools and charities:
