Our ReUse Shop opened in 2015 and is a bustling hub for Chingford locals looking for a bargain or project.
The shop sells a range of pre-loved items, with stock changing constantly. Items for sale could include furniture, toys, sports equipment, crockery and other household items. The items for sale have been donated for reuse by residents or collected from the other Reuse and Recycling Centres, which would otherwise have been thrown away.
Before, many of these items would have been sent for recycling – requiring energy to turn it into something new – or landfill.
All items in the shop are priced affordably, offering residents the chance to buy for a fraction of the cost they would do if they bought new.
