Charity shops praise council support for reuse and recycling

Charity shops have acknowledged the reuse and recycling support from local authorities with an award.

The Association of Charity Shops (ACS) presented Braintree District Council with an award for ‘Most Supportive Local Authority — Recycling/Reuse/Waste Management’ at its recent annual conference.

Braintree District Council showed its support for charity shops by giving Farleigh Hospice the first option to clear void council houses, sponsoring their Bag for Life, offering them the chance to pick up the outsourcing of their bulky waste collection system, offering PR and financial support, and working with the charity on a textile recycling scheme.

ACS executive secretary Lekha Klouda said: “By working together, charity shops can profit from the support of local authorities and local authorities can benefit from increase in their recycling figures and a reduction in the amount of waste going to landfill.”
