Reuse shop Christmas Recycling

Still need that special Christmas gift that’s affordable and in great condition? We know just the place where you can find it, plus you get the added benefit of supporting a fantastic local charity when you purchase.

Look no further than the Nightingale House Hospice reuse shop in Bryn Lane recycling centre! It’s sometimes referred to as a bit of an Aladdin’s cave (although Santa’s grotto might be more appropriate).

As we continue to get closer to Christmas there’s so many things you can get from the reuse shop to help spread some festive cheer.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The reuse shop sits within 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 the 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.”

Work in social care and be the lifeline your community needs.

If you need help filling up those stockings…

Then the reuse shop can definitely help you out. If you’re thinking of buying a TV, go over and take a look…there’s usually an abundance of them in stock, with varying sizes to choose from.

And if you’re unsure about buying a used TV, please know that all items are cleaned and safety tested before they’re sold 🙂

But if you’re after something a bit smaller, there’s usually a selection of items such as gift sets, toys, computer games, board games and cool ornaments to fill up those stockings.

Fancy a movie night?

Great! There’s a large selection of DVDs you can pick from at a reasonable price. Whether it’s a rom-com, kids film, action or horror movie you’re looking for, there’s likely to be a film to suit your mood.

Looking to get fitter in 2022?

A popular New Year’s resolution is getting a bit fitter and always a good starting point for this is cycling.

Need a bike? You’re in luck!

The reuse shop has many, many bikes that you can choose from. Children’s bikes or adult bikes – whatever you’re looking for – the reuse shop is bound to have something that fits the bill 🙂

Let’s face it, there’s not many people who wouldn’t want a bike for Christmas. All the bikes are stored outside the shop for you to give them a thorough checking over, so come and pay a visit.

Regift your unwanted presents

At one time or another we’ve all received Christmas presents that don’t quite hit the mark 🙁

But just because it’s not your cup of tea, this doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be perfect for someone else. Regifting involves giving your unwanted gifts to others and the reuse shop would be very grateful if you’d consider donating these items to them.

You can donate to the re-use shop at any of the three recycling centres; just speak to one of the attendants who’ll point you in the right direction.

Donate all year round

You can make donations to the reuse shop all year round, so if it gets to January and you don’t want to store your artificial Christmas tree or decorations until the following year the shop will be happy to take them off your hands.

The shop will store the items and sell them on the following year. They will gladly accept your donations even if they’re out of season.

Opening hours

The reuse shop is open daily between 9am – 4.30pm, but will close for Christmas on Wednesday, December 21. Please bear this in mind if you’re planning to pop in.

The shop will then reopen in the new year on Tuesday, January 4.

If you’re looking for a new career and want to help people in your community, a job in social care could be the right move.
