Waste Not Want Not Limited

We reduce landfill by collecting donated furniture and white goods and we sell these on to people on low incomes at very low prices. We have our own onsite PAT testing facility to ensure all electrical goods are working and safe. We have only two full time staff and provide volunteering opportunities to local people, many of whom will have been unemployed for long periods. By gaining self confidence and skills, they are then able to gain employment creating more volunteering places.

Founded 2002
