FCC partnership with councils hail reuse scheme

Posted by aclimaadmin | June 14, 2019 | Sector News

re3 has reported a ”significant spark” in the popularity of its reuse scheme available to residents of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs.

Last year, the volume of goods donated by re3 residents doubled to over 630 tonnes, not only diverting the waste away from the landfill but also supporting a charitable cause.

re3, a local authority partnership with FCC, has been working with Sue Ryder since 2011, donating suitable items that can be resold to benefit thousands of people each year who are in need of care. Items that meet the minimum criteria set out by Sue Ryder are collected by the charity for sale in their shops. Last year residents left 45 tonnes of reusable items at the re3 Recycling Centres that were donated to Sue Ryder charity, which raised an astounding £17,772 to support palliative, neurological and bereavement care.
