‘Shettleston Recycles’ to close down on Fri 6th March 2020

It is with regret that the Shettleston Recycles furniture reuse project will formally close on Friday 6th March 2020.

The Shettleston Recycles shop opened for business in July 2019 with a clear remit to provide high quality, low cost reused items of furniture, diverting items from landfill. The shop was a successor to the Upkeep Recycling service which was in operation for a number of years. For the relatively short time that the shop has been trading, it has provided a valuable service to the local community, helping a number of local residents furnish their homes and diverting tonnes of reusable goods away from landfill.

Sadly demand has been such that the shop has been unable to achieve the level of sales that would allow it to run sustainably, and as a result the decision has been made to close the project.

We would like to thank the staff and volunteers for their hard work, dedication and positivity and thank our customers over the past few months in assisting what was a very worthwhile project.
