Reuse scheme

We are working with FCC Environment who manage Dix Pit recycling centre to trial a reuse scheme, to reduce waste going for disposal and keeping things in use for longer. If you have brought something to the site which could be given a new home please speak to a member of staff.

Reusable items, such as furniture, musical instruments, toys and household goods are then taken to an auction house by FCC Environment. No items are sold on site. Please help us to save more items from being thrown away.
