ADOPT A RESOURCE

The resources we rescue through our Waste Brokerage Project need new homes. The materials below are currently available for reusing and repurposing. Send us a resource request if you think you could put them to use.

We're always adding items, so bookmark this webpage and check in regularly to see what's new.

If your business or organisation has any resources to contribute, email [email protected], or have a look at our wishlist at the bottom of this page for more ideas about what can be diverted from landfill.

HOW TO ARRANGE PICK UP

Pick ups are by appointment only.  Fill out this resource request form to make an appointment, or make arrangements directly if alternative contact details are listed.

For pick ups from Rosebank Road
Please note that we don't stock all these resources onsite, as we don't have the storage space. Once your request is received, our Waste Broker will liaise with the business to access offsite items for you. Then, they will be in touch to confirm your appointment or to reschedule if needed.
