|Cost Of 'Re-Use' Recycling Service Reduced|
Collection of re-usable items now the same as Bulky Waste
The Council has reduced the cost of its 're-use' service which enables residents to have unwanted furniture, appliances and other items collected, refurbished and passed on to people who need them. 'Re-use' items can now be collected for the same price as a 'Bulky Waste' pick-up.
'Re-use' stops items being thrown away. Instead they are collected separately and made available at affordable prices to low-income households.
Under a new partnership agreement with recycling service Resco, the cost to residents of having items collected has dropped from £21 to £16.50 for up to four items. Additional items will be collected for £7.50 each. This now matches the cost of the council’s bulky waste collection service, so there is no longer any cost incentive to have items suitable for re-use collected for disposal.
Residents can request for a mix of any of the items below to be collected for re-use:
To be suitable for re-use, items do not have to be in full working order but they must be in good cosmetic condition. Items that need refurbishment will be delivered to the Re:Work repair workshop in Smugglers Way, Wandsworth.
