RECYCLE DEVON THANK YOU AWARDS
The Recycle Devon Thank You Awards were launched 4 years ago to celebrate and recognise all those unsung heroes, individuals and groups who have helped to make Devon one of the top recycling counties in the country. Do you know someone who goes that extra mile to reuse or recycle? Entering is easy, simply choose from one of the categories below and complete the short form. To be able to nominate you must be a Devon resident and remember you can nominate in more than one category. All shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in February 2016 at County Hall in Exeter. Closing date for entries is 30th November 2015.

ReFURNISH is a Devon charity that collects unwanted furniture, electrical goods and other household items that are in good reusable condition, and sells them to those that appreciate the environmental benefits of reusing household goods that may otherwise go to waste, or simply want to buy at affordable prices.
We offer special discounts to pensioners and people who are in receipt of means tested benefits, but you don’t have to be on benefits to buy from our shops, our shops are open to all.
You can donate items by contacting your nearest shop or phoning 01752 927002 for all shops, and arranging for it to be collected, or by dropping them off in the shop (opening times only please!). We accept most furniture, electrical goods and general household goods. Donated items must be clean and in serviceable condition, see the donations page for more details.
All electrical items are function and safety tested and we only do minor repairs of furniture though we hope to do more in the future.
In addition to reducing waste and helping to alleviate poverty by providing low cost goods to people on low incomes, we provide volunteering, training and employment for people who may be unemployed or retired and may have a variety of support needs.
