New tip shop offering free recycled goods

ITEMS destined for the tip will be given a new lease on life thanks to a new reuse shop opening at the Mundaring tip this weekend.

Grab n Go @ Coppin, which is housed in an adapted sea container, will open its doors to the community on Saturday, 29 June.

Located at the Coppin Road Waste Transfer Station in Mundaring, it is expected that the new reuse shop will follow the success of the Shire’s first Grab n Go @ Mathieson which opened two years ago.

Residents can browse the items on show and take anything for free that they may have a use for.

The purpose of the shop is to encourage recycling and repurposing of items.

It is open during normal transfer station opening hours and residents with a transfer station pass can access the shop.

Residents are encouraged to speak to the transfer station employees about items that may be suitable for reuse.

Kitchenware, bicycles, small items of furniture, tools, equipment, toys and games are among items which may be accepted;

Electronic appliances, TVs computers, mattresses, sofas, carpet and tyres are not accepted.
