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.

The National Reuse Hotline aims to make it easier for people across many parts of Scotland to donate quality, unwanted goods (like furniture, working electrical items, and clothing) for re-use by others. The phoneline works with local charities including Magpie Project and New Hope Trust.. Call 0800 0665 820 for further details.
