Reuse Waste/Swop

Reusing waste is always a good thing to do. 

There are some items that can be used again either for the same purpose or for a different purpose such as:

  • Reusing jam jars as storage containers
  • Reusing plastic bottles for water or other drinks
  • Giving clothes to charity and second hand clothes shops 
  • Repairing furniture etc for further use.

In the past, reuse and repair were much more common. 

Reuse is still a part of our culture – why not check out your local charity shops which sell second-hand goods that might otherwise be waste requiring disposal. You can also keep items in use and preventing them from becoming waste by using www.freetradeireland.ie or other reuse web sites.
