A charity shop offering quality second hand goods is now open and trading at Rugby’s Household Waste Recycling Centre.

The Reuse shop based at Hunters Lane has opened its doors to members of the public, giving residents of Rugby one more reason to visit their local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC).

Age Concern Warwickshire operates the shop, which was the successful charity in winning a three-year contract from Warwickshire County Council.

Age Concern Warwickshire will use the revenue from the shop to support local schemes and initiatives in Rugby, centred around the activities of the Claremont Centre in Clifton Road.

Supporting the shop by donating items is a positive way members of the public can reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill, while simultaneously raising money for a good cause.

The opening hours of the Reuse Shop at Hunters Lane are as follows:

Monday to Tuesday
10:00 - 16:00

Wednesday
CLOSED

Thursday to Sunday
10:00 – 16:00

Members of the public can contact the shop directly on 01788 567484 for guidance on how to donate.

Two similar charity reuse shops, which offer good quality second hand items also operate at the Burton Farm HWRC in Stratford and Princes Drive HWRC in Leamington Spa.

Cllr Martin Heatley, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: “We are delighted the Reuse shop has now opened at Hunters Lane and hope it will mirror the success of the existing Re-use shops in Leamington and Stratford.”

Steve Thomson, Director of Business Development at Age Concern Warwickshire, said: “It’s fantastic to be open to the public, we are grateful to all the people who have already made donations to the shop and we look forward to converting these and future donations into sales. If you would like to volunteer to help at the shop then please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.”
