There are still far too many resources being lost to the landfill, the Re-use Shop provides another option.
The Re-use Shop is run by the Council waste management and minimisation contractor Metallic Sweeping Ltd, who provide the kerbside collection service in Blenheim and Picton and operates the Resource Recovery Centre and all of Marlborough's transfer stations.
For more information, contact Council on phone: 03 578 7917.
The shop stocks a range of household goods, furniture, building materials, toys, bikes, books, etc.
When you arrive at the shop a staff member will assess the materials you are looking to drop off. The shop is only looking for items that can be realistically resold. Items deemed as acceptable by the shop staff can be dropped off without charge.
Items that are only suitable for disposal can be dropped at the Blenheim Waste Sorting Centre (charges apply).
