What is St AndReuse?
St AndReuse is a townwide project that aims to tackle waste, save carbon, keep money in our pockets and build community, by passing on what we no longer need. It is open to everyone – locals, students and staff alike and we need your help in rehoming donations. And we welcome donations throughout the year, which can either be dropped off during Reuse’s drop-in sessions or with our partners at the Eco Hub (at 40 Kinnessburn Road). Everything is FREE except adult clothes/shoes, which are 5 for £5. Because of the support and engagement of the community, since 2009 we have rehomed over 40 tonnes of perfectly reusable household items, avoided 200 tonnes of CO2e emissions and helped people save in excess of £500k.We have just about anything but our staples are – kitchenware (saucepans, crockery, glasses, cutlery etc), fluffy cushions and blankets, laundry baskets/ shower racks, kids toys and clothes, a huge range of adults shoes and clothes, stationery (folders, pens, notebooks), puzzles and games, electricals (adapters, cables), books, toiletries & make-up, cleaning products, and all kinds of bedding (duvets, duvet covers and sheets, pillows and pillow cases, mattress protectors). Previous unusual donations include things like fairy wings, a Nintendo Wii, a family size tent (sleeping 8-12), golf clubs, a dehumidifier, drum kit, blow up mattresses… the list goes on. You just never know what you’re going to find!
We are open Mondays and Fridays 12:30 – 2:30pm and the first Saturday of the month 11am – 1pm. This project is a partnership between Transition, the St Andrews Environmental Network and the University of St Andrews.
