Reuse Hub

No longer using your too-small table? Donate it to the Reuse hub

The Reuse hub in Horsham’s Park and Ride car park is open. Bring your unwanted good-condition furniture to the hub and we’ll give it a new lease of life.

Once we’ve got enough donations, we’ll be running a pop-up-shop to sell the items at affordable prices. All the money raised will go back in to running the project.

The initiative has been funded by the West Sussex Waste Partnership. It’s a 9-month trial project to reduce waste and give good-condition furniture a new lease of life.

What to do with items we cannot accept

How does this trial prevent waste?

Keeping good quality products in active use for longer preserves natural resources and prevents waste. It also supports those who are less able to purchase brand new items, and avoids carbon emissions from new product manufacture and distribution.

Shouldn’t we be encouraging people not to get rid of good-condition furniture in the first place?

Absolutely, and we do. We’re committed to helping our residents reduce their waste and we know that in lots of cases people need to get rid of furniture before its life-span is up. House-moves and lifestyle changes often lead to furniture and furnishings being replaced. We want to make sure everyone knows there are lots of options for good-condition furniture.
