The Corner Shop
The innovative shop is located on Llansamlet at the Household Waste Recycling (HWRC). We are open 7 days a week.
The Corner Shop sells a variety of items including books, toys, crockery, ornaments, furniture and electrical items. All items in the shop were destined to be sent to landfill or broken up for recycling, staff at the HWRC are asking the public if any of the items they are throwing away are reusable. Anything that can be reused then goes straight to the Corner Shop to await a new home. This will keep a significant quantity of 'waste' out of the landfill sites and give many items new lease of life.
The huge success of the shop and the amount of material coming in has meant that the shop has had to be expanded several times. There is now a whole department just for electrical items where you will find everything from lamps to televisions all of which have been tested for safety.
Prices of all items start from £1 and all money raised will go towards educational projects being run by the Council's recycling team.
Come along and grab yourself a bargain. New stock is always welcome so if you are having a clear out you can bring any reusable items direct to the Corner Shop.
Remember one man's trash is another man's treasure.
