Reuse household items by giving them away
There are many websites where you can give away items you no longer need. This is a great way to benefit someone else who is looking for your item, reduce your environmental impact and save you money.
The person receiving the item may be required to collect it from you, saving you a trip and reducing costs further.
You may also want to consider giving away items to a:
- local charity shop
- family member
You can now deposit unwanted but good condition DIY materials or take them for free from the designated area at the Reuse and Recycling Centre. This is available on a trial basis which will run throughout the summer. Items include:
- odd tiles
If you'd like to drop off or collect any DIY materials please speak to a member of onsite staff for information and potential restrictions.
Donate items for reuse through Community Skips
You can donate items these items through the community skips service if they are in good or fair condition:
- children’s toys
- clothing and textiles (bagged)
- wooden furniture (no upholstered furniture)
Items in a suitable condition will be sent the Reuse shop run by North London Waste Authority (NLWA), which will be refurbished and put back into use instead of being disposed of. Clothing and textiles will be given to The Salvation Army.
