Reuse unwanted items - Wandsworth ReWork

Wandsworth residents can help do their bit by taking unwanted household goods to the ReWork Workshop at the re-use bay at Smugglers Way waste and recycling centre.

ReWork passes unwanted household goods including furniture and white goods like fridges, cookers and washing machines on to charities and social enterprises to be sold at affordable prices to low-income families.

White goods are refurbished to ensure they are fully functioning and completely safe. If an electrical item cannot be repaired, if possible it will be broken down into parts that are sold in an online shop. 

The renovation work is carried out by local people who have been out of work for some time. They receive training and paid work experience. The aim is to give them skills in electrical engineering and maintenance work, as well as experience of a workplace environment, to help them start a new career.

ReWork is operated by Groundwork London with the support of the Western Riverside Waste Authority and Cory Riverside Energy. Find out more about ReWork’s Reuse Workshop in Wandsworth on the Western Riverside Waste Authority website.
