Our 2 Centres are in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire and Harlow, Essex (please see their own pages for full details).
They are full of resources at a very low cost to your organisation.
We are an Environmental Charity, self funded by the Trustees and have been operating since September 2009 gaining charity status in January 2010.
In July 2014 the number of our membership groups signed to our Centres passed 2000
Our purpose is the practice and promotion of recycling, re-use and reduction.
We collect clean usable waste including off-cuts of material, wood, card, surplus stocks, end of lines and unwanted goods/returns from industry and local businesses. Almost 100% of our resources are brand new and unused.
We then sort everything at our central distribution centre in Northamptonshire where anything that can be re-used then gets put onto our shelves for our members to take and re-use, (limits are put onto items to make sure all is shared fairly) everything else that can be, then gets recycled. We work closely with local waste recycling transfer stations.
We also have a members discount area where educational aids and children's furniture can be purchased at very advantageous prices.
We welcome anyone interested in our Centre to visit us and have a look around to see all that we offer. You can complete the membership form, purchase tokens and collect resources on this initial visit.
Please read the following letter we received from a member to understand how our Centre can be of such great help in many ways.
