Many things we throw away could be reused by someone else, either conventionally, where an item is used for the same purpose again, or creatively, where it can be used for a different function.
Reusing products is even better than recycling because the item does not need to be reprocessed before it can be used by someone else. Reusing items such as electrical and furniture extends their life and prevents resources going to landfill. It also supports charity shops and reuse organisations by providing valuable items for them to resell.
Or you can choose to have the items repaired for either yourself or other people to carry on using.
There are many organisations in Worcestershire that will accept items for reuse and some may even collect them from your home.
There are also reuse containers at some of the Household Recycling Centres where local charities will accept good quality furniture, bric-a-brac or bikes, which they then sell to raise funds.
