@ Greenwich Reuse and Recycling Centre

RePurpose @ Greenwich Reuse and Recycling Centre is now closed

From Friday 4 November 2023, our RePurpose project will no longer operate from Greenwich Reuse and Recycling Centre.

That doesn’t mean that our commitment to repurposing and upcycling will stop, and we are very excited for the big plans we have for RePurpose.

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be exploring new opportunities to deliver on our sustainability goals which lie close to our hearts, expanding to offer new services and new products across our hospice shops all over the boroughs of Royal Greenwich and Bexley.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported the project over the last five years and the Royal Borough of Greenwich Council for their generosity during our stay at the Nathan Way building.

Watch this space for information on our new, exciting developments for RePurpose.

If you have any questions, please email info@gbch.org.uk.
If you have a media enquiry, please contact Molly O'Shea mollyoshea@gbch.org.uk.

Best thing about RePurpose:

It breaks my heart to see things go to waste, so being able to bring things back to life makes me happy.
