Haringey furniture scheme launched

Veolia and Haringey Council in London have joined forces to start up a new furniture reuse scheme.

Tottenham-based ReStore Community Projects offers affordable recycled furniture to local residents, with special rates for low-income families.

Veolia will make up to 30 free collections of quality reusable items a week for the scheme through the Veolia Haringey Contact Centre.

Veolia regional manager Fabrice Bouchon said it was important for the company to engage with community organisations.

He added: “Not only do we help them in terms of diverting and delivering items to them, but we also offer our staff the opportunity to spend a paid half a day volunteering with ReStore, as part of our company’s commitment to its staff to allow them all the opportunity to give something back to their community in this way.”

ReStore general manager Nadeem Razvi, added: “Our partnership with Veolia will enable us to expand our role in the local community enabling us to support more residents through volunteering opportunities and a greater number of items available to buy.”

Councillor Nilgun Canver, Haringey’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “This is a very positive scheme for the residents of Haringey. Not only does it support families in hardship, but it also promotes sustainability and reuse, helping us become a greener Haringey.”
