Reduce

Where possible consider repairing broken items.

Reuse

Before you throw anything away why not see if it can be reused or upcycled? There are lots of ways this can be done:  

Reuse shop

Staffordshire recycling centres have a reuse area where items in good condition can be donated where they will be taken to the  reuse shop located on the Cannock Recycling Centre. 

Charity shops

Charity shops accept a wide variety of items. Please contact your local charity shop for more information on what they can accept. A number of charities in Staffordshire will happily collect your unwanted large household items if they are in good condition. 

Reuse networks

Reuse networks such as Freecycle, Freegle and Ecobees allow members to advertise goods for reuse or sharing through local groups and forums. Membership and advertising is free and everything offered must also be free. 

Sell

There are a variety of online selling websites. Other options are advertising in the local paper, or noticeboards in a newsagents or some supermarkets. If you have quite a few items why not consider a car boot sale?

Upcycle

How about being creative and turning an old item into something stylish?  

Recycle

Kerbside recycling

Small electrical and electronic items are accepted through some council collections. They also offer bulky waste collections for larger items. Check your  local council for further information and charges. Electrical items should never be thrown in the rubbish bin, they contain hazardous and valuable materials and should be recycled properly.

Recycling centres

Small and large electrical and electronic items can be brought to any of Staffordshire’s recycling centres.
