Some of Norfolk Recycle Centres now host Reuse Shops, which are similar to charity shops. The shops differ in size and therefore the stock levels vary considerably.

Make sure you pop in to see your local Reuse Shop soon, so you know what type of things they have in stock and hopefully pick yourself up a bargain. The stock changes daily and you never know what gems may be hiding in there.

Don’t forget to donate your quality items to the shops when you visit the recycling centres. Some sites also accept quality electrical equipment for reuse. Ask staff where the drop off point is for their shop and they will assess the suitability of your items for resale.

All items are sold at car boot sale prices, with all takings going back into running the service.

We no longer accept cash payments for amounts over £10 – you will need to pay with a debit or credit card.

If you can’t get to a Reuse Shop, don’t forget your local charity shop who are the experts in reuse and keeping items in use for longer.

Our Charity Partnership

Norfolk County Council’s reuse shops are currently supporting the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

A proportion of the proceeds from reuse shops is donated and supports the charity’s vital role in providing a helicopter emergency medical service for the people of East Anglia.

Having previously donated more than £ 8,000 to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, the reuse shops have raised an incredible £9,470  for the EAAA in the first year of the new partnership, which was launched in April 2018.

Thank you for continued support through donations and purchases.
