The Re-users Shop

 

Under the management of the employment and skills charity The Jericho Foundation, the Re-users shop sell items that are no longer wanted by the citizens of Birmingham that have previously been sent to the Norris Way centre for recycling or disposal.

The Re-users Shop opened its doors earlier this year, under the management of the employment and skills charity The Jericho Foundation, selling items no longer wanted by Birmingham citizens that had previously been sent to the Norris Way centre for recycling or disposal. 

The project has been developed in partnership between Birmingham City Council and Jericho and supported by the city council’s waste management partner Veolia.

Staff from Jericho will collect usable items that are brought to them by willing members of the public who visit the site. Jericho employees will then restore, prepare and ultimately re-sell items that come into their possession from a unit at the site.

A wide range of items from bikes to televisions to cabinets will be accepted by The Re-users, which is currently refurbishing an unused building on the site to act as its premises.
