Reuse Shop Launches in Bolsover

The first Derbyshire Reuse Shop has opened it doors to the public.

Reuse Initiative Launches in Derbyshire


The Bolsover Household Waste Recycling Centre site team have worked tirelessly to ensure the new reuse shop is in tip top shape and well stocked with best variety of pre-loved items ready for the launch event on Friday 22nd March. From furniture, homeware and garden equipment, stock is already flying off the shelves. Councillor Carolyn Renwick, Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Environment, said: “Re-use shops provide an opportunity for local residents to purchase items at low cost and we’ve seen some really great examples of where councils elsewhere in the UK are operating re-use shops really successfully.

“Re-use is even better for the environment than recycling as it means items can be put to good use without having to use energy to re-process them and turn them into something new. If the re-use shop at Bolsover proves popular then we will consider opening further stores at other recycling centres across the county.”

Through our Reuse Service we aim to provide a circular economy solution to reducing waste and emissions by providing low cost household items for local residents. This is a joint initiative with Derbyshire County Council is stocked with the very best pre-loved items brought into our Derbyshire Centres, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to a local charity.
