Re-Use Shop

Stock Road House Waste Recycling Centre

Do you have good quality unwanted items that are just too good to throw away?

The Stock Road Re-use shop accepts a wide range of items including furniture, electrical items, TV’s, glass ware/crockery and bric ‘a’ brac.

By passing unwanted items to the shop you are helping to prevent such items being sent to landfill, therefore reducing waste and helping to protect the environment.

The shop can have between 20-50 customers per day with Saturday being the busiest time, so please check the opening times below if you are thinking of visiting.

A new scheme has recently started that will see bicycles that come into the HWRC refurbished then sold on through the shop.

If you are thinking of disposing of good quality items please bring them to the shop or visit if you are interested in purchasing second hand items.

Unfortunately the shop cannot accept some items, examples include:

  • Safety equipment e.g. Child car seats and motorcycle helmets
  • Upholstered items without the 1988/93 fire label
  • Stair gates
  • Broken toys
  • Carpets
  • Any sort of weapon
