Re-use Shop

Marlborough District Council's Re-use Shop is located on the Wither Road Extension at the western end of Wither Road.

The facility is an integral part of the Marlborough Resource Recovery Centre, which is Council's hub of recycling activity.

Go to Resource Recovery Centre

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.

What's welcome at the Re-use Shop

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).

Tips for loading your trailer before visiting the Re-use, Resource Recovery Centre and Temporary Blenheim Transfer Station

The best way to load your trailer is:

  • Recyclables on top so they can be removed first and placed in the slots along the recycling wall at the Resource Recovery Centre
  • Underneath the recyclables should be the reusables which can then be unloaded at the Re-use Shop.
  • Any greenwaste should be kept separate and taken to Greenwaste Acceptance Facility and Composting which is also sited at the end of the Wither Road Extension
  • The remaining waste can then be taken to the Blenheim Waste Sorting Centre.
