The Reuse Shop
The ReUse shop is located within this site selling a range of items which could include furniture, sports equipment, and other household items. The items for sale have been donated us for reuse by residents or collected from other Reuse and Recycling Centres managed by North London Waste Authority in the area and would have otherwise been thrown away. The RRCs and Reuse Shop are operated by LondonEnergy Ltd.
Shop opening times: the Reuse Shop is open Wednesday to Saturday, 9am - 4pm.
Donate items to the shop
If you have any items that you plan on taking to your local RRC, consider if they could be used by another individual or whether someone else might be interested in upcycling them into new products. If so and you are visiting the Kings Road RRC, take your item(s) into the shop instead of placing them in one of the recycling containers.
Second Time Around opening times
