Gloucestershire’s reuse shops are back
By Sarah Wood | 28th May 2021
The Household Recycling Centres' reuse shops at Fosse Cross and Oak Quarry have now reopened, following the easing of coronavirus restrictions.
The reuse shops at Cirencester and Coleford take in donated good quality second hand items and sell them on for a small cost to those looking for a bargain.
To help reduce the spread of Covid-19, both shops are limited to one customer at a time and wearing a face covering is required inside. Hand sanitiser is available for people to use before entering the shop.
Social distancing measures are in place to help keep visitors and staff safe and crucially anyone with Covid-19 symptoms and those in self-isolating households must not visit.
The reuse shops only accept cash payments, and the exact money is preferred to avoid change-giving.
All trips to Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) across the county and reuse shops must continue to be booked in advance.
Cllr David Gray, cabinet member responsible for waste, said: "It's great that our reuse shops are now open again and available for people to use. I'm pleased so many people are using our Household Recycling Centres at the moment. I hope the reopening of the reuse shops will help encourage people to think before they throw away perfectly good items."
