CIWM Cymru Wales Site Visit to
new showroom in Treorchy
toogoodtowaste is the leading re-use charity and
social enterprise operating in Rhondda Cynon Taf. They reduce waste by collecting re-usable
household items and redistributing them via their charity showrooms. The income
they raise enables them to help low income households and provide training and
In 2018 they collected over 92,000 items from local
residents & commercial donors, over 78,000 items were sold and selected for
re-use with over 12,000 people using their showrooms to access affordable
household items and they diverted over 720 tonnes of electrical & household
items from landfill. Volunteers play a
key part in helping them achieve this and they supported over 280 volunteers in
2018, who committed over 50,000 hours of support.
