DCC - Do you want to re-home items you don’t use? Join Tuesday Tables

The coronavirus lockdown has given many of us the chance to sort out those long forgotten corners of the loft or garage and have a good de-clutter ready for Spring.

And now communities across Devon have the chance to rehome those every-day items they no longer need simply by leaving them outside their front door every Tuesday, starting from 6 April.

The new initiative is called ‘Tuesday Tables’ and is part of Recycle Devon’s commitment to help residents reduce the amount of waste they throw away.

It encourages people to pass on items they no longer need so that they can be used by someone that may benefit. All you have to do is put things you don’t want any more on your doorstep, in your front garden, or on your driveway every Tuesday – and let people know that you are taking part in 'Tuesday Tables'. You can either display a makeshift sign saying FREE or you can download, print off and display one of the signs available on the Recycle Devon website.

Because coronavirus can be transmitted on hard surfaces, please quarantine items for three days in a garage or a box before the event to help keep everyone safe.

Please make sure that any items you leave for collection are not broken, dirty or potentially dangerous and are not on the pavement or road. And at the end of the day bring in whatever is not taken and maybe try a local Freecycle or Freeagle group, or list items as 'free' on Facebook marketplace or Gumtree – you will be surprised what people will come and collect when it’s free. If your road or local area has a social media group this is a great place to share which roads are taking part to build local interest.

For more information please visit the Recycle Devon website.
