Refurbs is supporting Global Recycling Day – March 18th 2021.
Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognise, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving primary resources and securing the future of our planet. It is a day for the world to come together and put the planet first.
One of Refurbs primary objectives is to make people aware of the benefits of reusing and recycling to reduce pollution, to protect the environment and to promote sustainable waste management practice.
Refurbs have had to close their retail outlets throughout the various lockdowns in 2020 / 2021 as have many others however they still continue to deliver services that raise awareness of reusing and recycling protecting the environment, and reducing waste sent to landfill.
Refurbs have been able to continue with their furniture deconstruction project in partnership with Flintshire County Council, their Property Clearing & Cleaning service and have also been receiving and collecting furniture donations in line with government guidelines, which are currently available to purchase through their Facebook Shop.
From April 2020 – Dec 2020 Refurbs have helped 2,371 people to reduce the waste they send to landfill and diverted a total of 232 tonnes of waste from Landfill.
Martin Hawthorne Enterprise Manager for Refurbs has said.
“Here at Refurbs we are excited about sharing the messages of recycle and reusing. Assisting people to be confident in their recycling and reusing choices”.
Refurbs are looking forward to opening their outlets on Henblas St, Wrexham and on Aber Park Ind Estate Flintshire as soon as guidance allows. These outlets allow Refurbs to promote the recycling and reusing message across the communities through the purchasing of affordable household furniture and appliances.
2021 will see a new addition to the Refurbs family with the launch of the Repair and Reuse centre with café on Brunswick St in Buckley in partnership with Flintshire County Council. The facility will promote community cohesion through repair and reuse initiatives, whilst providing an opportunity to support the regeneration of one of Flintshire’s town centres.
Global Recycling Day gives the opportunity to highlight the need to continue raising awareness of the messages of reusing and recycling, asking people to think again about what is thrown away – seeing not waste, but opportunity.
