SHIRE of Mundaring residents can now recycle suitable household items after the installation of a reuse shop in an adapted sea container.

Recently opened at Mathieson Road Waste Transfer Station in Chidlow, Grab n Go @ Mathieson, is the first shop of its kind in the Shire.

Shire President David Lavell said the sea container had a hydraulic front, which opened to provide a space where items could be viewed.

“Residents can browse the items on show and take anything for free that they may have a use for,” he said.

“This is a fantastic initiative that encourages recycling and repurposing of items, which is great for the environment.”

Grab n Go @ Mathieson cost about $30,000 to build and install.

It is open during normal transfer station opening hours and residents with a transfer station pass can gain entry to Grab n Go @ Mathieson.

Residents are encouraged to speak to employees about items which may be suitable.

Kitchenware, bicycles, furniture, tools, equipment, toys and games are among items which may be accepted; computers, mattresses, carpet and tyres are not accepted.
