Bargains that benefit the environment

2 April 2024

We’ve opened a re-use shop at our household waste recycling centre in Bolsover.

The shop will stock good quality items collected at our recycling centres and sell them at low cost to give them a new lease of life.

Items like:

  • furniture
  • crockery, pots, cutlery, kitchen goods
  • books, CDs, records, DVDs – all should be originals and not copies
  • ornaments
  • pictures, picture frames and pieces of art
  • garden furniture, garden tools, garden ornaments
  • premium clothing and footwear – donated directly to the shop
  • toys and board games

The shop will be open in tandem with the recycling centre and will be run by contractors H W Martin who operate 8 household waste recycling centres for us.

Proceeds from sales at the re-use shop will go towards running costs of the shop and any profits will be shared equally between us, H W Martin and charitable causes.

Our share of any profits will be put back into our waste management budget which pays for services like the running of household waste recycling centres.

If the shop proves popular then we will consider opening further stores at other household waste recycling centres across the county.

Purchases can be made using cash or electronically.

Re-use is even better for the environment than recycling as it means items can be put to good use without having to use energy to re-process them and turn them into something new.
