A recycling centre is inviting people to discover more about donating and buying pre-loved items.

Garstang recycling centre’s re-use shop is running the first of the roadshow events on Saturday (19 August).

On from 10am to 4pm the re-use shop is one of a number across Lancashire County Council’s recycling and household waste sites.

Cabinet member for environment and climate change county councillor Shaun Turner said: “Our reuse shops are a fantastic addition to our recycling centres, as they’re a great way of finding hidden gems at affordable prices. Instead of going to waste, these items can be put to great ‘reuse’ in another home.

“As well as putting the spotlight on our shops, our roadshows will highlight the community spirit and benefits of second-hand shopping. Donating your pre-loved items also supports our local services in helping families in need.

“If you’re in the Garstang area at the weekend, why not stop by to see what our reuse shops have on offer?”

Items in the re-use shops include labelled electrical goods, garden supplies, spare parts, bric-a-brac, furniture, clothing, children’s toys and more.

The event takes place at the Garstang household waste recycling centre, Brockholes Way, Catterall, near Garstang, Lancashire, PR3 0PZ

Another re-use roadshow is planned for the Preston-reuse shop at the Ingol tip in September with the date still to be confirmed.
