Surrey Reuse Network
If you believe that your items are reusable or can be fixed, you may wish to have them collected by the Surrey Reuse Network to be re-conditioned and put back into the community. Although there is no charge, a donation towards van running costs of £15 per collection is invited. To arrange a collection call 01737 773133.
