Reduce, reuse, recycle for Highland

Top tips for your home



Reuse can be sharing, repairing, donating and re-selling

  • try repairing your household items rather than throwing them away
  • take items to repair cafes and workshops
  • pass on good condition, unwanted household items and clothing to reuse organisations
  • give away unwanted, good condition items through social media marketplaces, notice boards, or "freebie" groups.
  • go to or host swapshops or " swishing" clothes events
  • find pre-loved items at car boot or jumble sales
  • join and use a tool library
  • donate unwanted items to charity and buy second hand items rather than new
  • sell your unwanted items on online stores and social media or at car boot sales, via notice boards or in local newspapers
