Reselling unwanted items
Published: 27 February 2018
Unearth tantalising treasure at a Revive shop
If you're looking for something new for your home or garden or if you're a keen upcycler, look no further than Surrey's Revive shops. The shops resell unwanted items given to community recycling centres (CRCs) making them a treasure trove of truly fascinating, weird and wonderful items.
Located at CRCs in Woking, Witley, Redhill and Leatherhead, Revive shops take unwanted furniture, bikes, crockery, tools, garden furniture, CDs, DVDs, records, sports equipment and much, much more. They check all donations and, if suitable for re-use, resell them.
As well as reducing waste, Revive shops offset the running costs of CRCs, helping to maintain the service. Additionally ten per cent of the shops' profits are donated to local charities voted for by shop users.
You can nominate your favourite charity by voting at any Revive shop. Every three months the charity with the most votes will receive the money.
Whether you have some house or garden items that could go to a better home or if you're looking for something new or a project to work on, pay a visit to a Revive shop now. You never know what you might find.
