A second chance for unwanted items

A reuse shop at the council’s new Thorn Turn Household Waste Recycling Centre is now open for business. The shop, which is open seven days a week from 9am-5pm including bank holidays, sells those items taken into the council’s recycling centres which can be reused.

The reused items go towards the councils recycling targets and help boost the overall amount of waste that’s reused, recycled and composted in Central Bedfordshire. All items for sale have been collected either directly from the Thorn Turn site near Houghton Regis, or from one of the council’s other waste recycling centre sites in Ampthill, Biggleswade and Leighton Buzzard.

The range of reusable materials being sold include bicycles, bags, luggage, clothing, shoes, soft furnishings and furniture (with valid fire safety labels), children’s games and toys, along with sports equipment including golf clubs and bags, CDs, DVDs, books, clocks, pictures, mirrors, jewellery, garden furniture and tools.

Residents who want to donate an item should let a staff member know at any one of the council’s Waste RecyclingCentres. All items must be in good condition and safe to use. These items will then be taken to the Thorn Turn Reuse Shop.

Councillor Budge Wells, Deputy Executive Member for Community Services at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “Reuse shops are extremely popular for the public who want to grab a pre-loved bargain, and our shop at Thorn Turn is already proving to be a success.”

“We are always looking at different ways that help reduce the amount of waste we dispose of and encouraging reuse is one of those ways. The new shop at Thorn Turn will help prevent unnecessary waste from being thrown away, and so improve our recycling rate. Everything we can do to help people to reuse or recycle means our residents’ council tax goes even further.  The money saved can be spent on vulnerable members of our society, or maintenance of libraries or play areas and that has to be great news!”

“We hope our residents will continue to make good use of this facility by donating items that are in a reusable condition, and perhaps also pick up a bargain for themselves whilst they’re here.”

The reuse shop is located at Thorn Turn Household Waste Recycling Centre, Grendall Lane, Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, LU5 6GJ.
