Measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of customers and staff in re-use stores.

These include, limitations on the number of people in the shop at a given time, two-metre distancing, a one way system in the shop and hand sanitisers.

Appointments must be booked at suffolk.gov.uk/recyclingcentres to drop off items for re-use and recycling, with 11 recycling centres accepting donations.

The re-use shops aim to reduce waste and increase recycling in Suffolk as well as raising vital funds for those in need through the sale of donated items, the proceeds of which go to local charities.
