Reuse schemes

Reuse schemes at Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs)

Aberdeenshire Council is working in partnership with charities, setting up reuse schemes at some of its HWRCs. A container is available in the Reuse Area in which the public can place unwanted items in good or easily repairable condition. Volunteers from the charities will then take the items away to be either sold in their shops to raise funds or used directly in their charitable activities.

These include:
