Renew Shops

Renew Shops

We’ve opened three Renew shops in Greater Manchester. These shops sell pre-loved household items at an affordable price and are located at three of our recycling centres.

The 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.

Renew shop locations:

Woodhouse Lane, Recycling Centre, Altrincham, WA14 5TB 


Arkwright Street, Oldham, OL9 9LZ (entrance next to the recycling centre)


Boysnope Wharf, Recycling Centre Liverpool Road, Eccles, M30 7RH

Renewing Greater Manchester Communities

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 (link opens in new tab)
£220,000 to the Recycle for Greater Manchester Community Fund (link opens in new tab)

Donate Items

To ensure the Renew shops are regularly stocked, we are encouraging residents to donate their unwanted items. There are donate containers at 15 recycling centres across Greater Manchester. Items can be cleaned and repaired.

You can now donate a range of electrical items to be resold through our renew shops, including washing machines, hoovers, cookers, televisions and more!
