Reuse

Trash to treasure

Clothes and shoesfurniturepaintelectrical appliances... We all have things around the house that we don’t use or want anymore, but your trash could be someone else’s treasure. There are lots of ways you can reuse your unwanted stuff in north London. 

Repair and reuse is the next best option to not creating any waste in the first place. So before you recycle something why not check whether there’s a way you can let someone else reuse it? Reuse means you’ll be reducing your waste and helping someone else out.
