Reuse shop or Aladdin’s cave? Watch our video and decide for yourself…

Recycling is a fantastic thing and more of us in Wrexham are starting to take this on board. But we’re not just talking about your empty cans, bottles and tins; don’t forget there’s plenty of other stuff that can be recycled too…

We’re talking sporting equipment, hoovers, prams, furniture, bikes, garden furniture, televisions, DVD’s, blu-rays, CD’s and other electrical items…all of which are recycled at the reuse shop in Bryn Lane recycling centre.


The reuse shop is run by Nightingale House Hospice and in November this wonderful Aladdin’s cave will celebrate its three-year anniversary.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, explains, “The reuse shop sits within our Bryn Lane recycling centre and it’s a place where you purchase really good quality items that have been recycled. They always have a wide range of stock at extremely good value and we’d encourage everyone to go there and see for themselves.

“You can donate items with resale value at any of our three recycling centres and they’ll be passed on to the reuse shop. Whether you’re buying or donating, you’ll be helping a great local cause in Nightingale House Hospice who do truly wonderful work in the local area.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the incredible work of Nightingale House; they provide care for the terminally ill and their families – completely free-of-charge, across a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire and East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns, including Oswestry and Whitchurch.

All donated items will be cleaned and safety tested before being sold back at the re-use shop – and as you can see from our video, there’s plenty to choose from.

So remember, if you’re looking for some stuff for your house, gifts for others, or – dare we say it already – Christmas extras, go over and see what’s on offer…because there’s plenty 🙂

Or if you’re in need of a de-clutter, please consider donating your unwanted items.

Remember, either way, you’re helping a great cause and also recycling perfectly good items – great stuff!
