The Centre was reopened in September 2015 following much local demand for a recycling facility in Garstang. There are a wide range of recycling facilities, including electricals, oils and green garden waste. There is also a reuse shop run by local charity Gift92 that sells donated bricabrac, furniture, books and electricals. More information about the charity and the types of things on sale is on their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Garstanggift92/
The attached leaflet gives full details of the service for your information.
Although a number of residents regularly visit the centre, we feel that there is more to be done to get the centre on the map and really get local people making the most of this unique facility.
We are looking for your help in your networks to:
1. Get the message out about the facility. I can forward you leaflets for distribution. Please let me know how many you would like.
2. Spreading the word about volunteering opportunities in the re-use centre to help in the shop and with repairing/ testing donated stock. A full description of the volunteer opportunity is on the LCC website https://app.betterimpact.com/PublicEnterprise/fc164282-65e0-4f49-ac06-1102ec8dfa0d and type waste in the search box.
3. Let us know about any local events that we could take part in to raise the profile of the facility.
We really want to make the centre a community resource that helps local people to contribute to their environment and community by recycling and re-using more. We would very much appreciate your help. If you have any questions, or ideas about how we can work together please get in touch with Cat Holden, Waste Management Officer at Lancashire County Council.
