    It’s good to see that RBC are donating all this furniture to charity rather than just dumping it. It would be so much easier for other companies (and households) to avoid putting perfectly good furniture etc in a skip if Guernsey had a Repair and Reuse Centre. Surely this is a no-brainer for any waste minimisation strategy – I can’t think why we’ve gone so long without one!

  2. Kathy

    This has been needed for so long – there has been so much waste in Guernsey. Items have been deliberately spoilt so that no one can have them – good to see sense at last.

  3. julie Madeley

    yes.. a repair and re-use centre would be great and could also employ people on probation etc

    Hear hear! I can’t wait until we have a Re-use, Repair and Reclamation Center and since I wrote a letter about it to the Press before Christmas, I have lost track of the amount of people who have told me they agree and can’t understand why we don’t have one yet. It could be such an exciting community project….. an iconic building giving Guernsey a great name for doing the right thing.

    I will try to ignore the fact that the States are mostly men and the people shouting for this sensible idea are mostly women….

    More importantly, well done RBC.

    And to those who we put in power – please have some vision. Stop looking at everything in ruthless business terms. No matter what waste strategy is decided, this will be an integral part of it unless you are planning on saving everything for a giant incinerator…..and you wouldn’t be that stupid for a third time……..would you??

    Some filing cabinets would be great. Lockable ones.

    Many Thanks

    I totally agree about recycling, what a good idea, hope it goes to a needy home/buissness.

  8. Sam Mauger

    Two coffee tables, please.
    An excellent strategy welcomed. Any scheme to reduce waste and promote re-usage of unwanted items is a move in the right direction.

    one computer desk please.. of the two wooden ones

Have your say
