Every council tip to have a reuse shop

Wednesday, 28 June 2017 11:22

Cllr Crimmings Terry Walton Cllr Holmes at the Shed OpeningOn a bright, slightly overcast Monday morning, Lesley Prescott, Head of Operations and Claire Charras, Business Support Manager set off to Llantrisant Recycling Centre in Rhondda Cynon Taf where FRN members, Wastesavers, officially opened The Shed, Rhondda Cynon Taff first reuse shop at a recycling centre.

Little did we know that we would be joining national allotment celebrity, Terry Walton (BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine show) who cut the ribbon to the new reuse shop and called on every council to set up similar shops.
Terry said: "We all throw away far too much stuff that could be reused, many people would prefer their unwanted items go to a good home but don't want the hassle of selling them.
"This shop is brilliant," he continued, "it's like a seven day a week car boot sale. To think that all this would have gone into landfill is criminal. Every recycling centre and tip should have one."
These are certainly words that echoed our own thoughts at the FRN. Diverting waste at point of disposal and working in partnerships with local councils to do so is something we do not see enough of in the UK.
