Selling pre-loved items at affordable prices

The Renew shops stock a wide variety of homeware, garden furniture, toys, sports equipment, books and more. Items have been donated by residents and cleaned and repaired before being handpicked by staff for the shops in Eccles, Oldham and Altrincham.

The aim of the Renew shops is to reduce waste, reuse unwanted items and increase recycling rates. Many of the items donated by residents would have otherwise gone to waste.

All money raised by the shops will go to support local communities through two Greater Manchester initiatives. Each year money raised through sales made in the Renew shops will be donated as follows:

£100,000 to the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity
£220,000 to the Recycle for Greater Manchester Community Fund

Goods carried in vehicles are the responsibility of the owner who should follow safe driving practices and ensure the roof rack is suitable for their vehicle and the weight of the goods.

Unfortunately we do not have staff available to provide this service and advise customers to consider this when purchasing larger items.

The shops will be accessible with a temporary ramp. There is a bell to alert staff who will be able to help.

Can I access the shops on foot or on a bike?

Unfortunately, customers are unable to access the shops on foot due to safety as the household waste recycling centres are not designed for pedestrians. They can be accessed by bike. The shop at Arkwright Street can be accessed on foot as long as pedestrians stick to the marked out path to the site.

Can I take my children with me to the shops?

Due to safety, children are advised not to leave the vehicle on the household waste recycling centres. There is a footpath from the car park to the shop at the Arkwright Street shop and so we advise parents to be cautious if they choose to take their children with them.

How do I donate items to the Renew shops?

There are donation containers at the majority of the household waste recycling centres. A list of which household waste recycling centres have containers can be found here Renew donations
