Renew is an ambitious and unique project which aims to create value from waste to benefit Greater Manchester. It’s a joint initiative between R4GM & SUEZ UK. We take items donated at Recycling Centres across Greater Manchester, then we repair and renew them at our Renew Hub, ready to be resold to a new home. Browse our wide range of pre-loved items by visiting our Renew Shops or eBay page.

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 to Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity and Recycle for Greater Manchester Community Fund.





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.

The Renew Hub is the centre of our operations, located in Trafford Park. All the items that have been donated at the recycling centres are taken to the Hub to be cleaned and prepared for resale, or selected for upcycling. 

At more than 5000m2, the Renew Hub is the UK’s largest, newest and most unique reuse operation in terms of opportunity and scale. Hundreds of tonnes of pre-loved items which would have otherwise gone to waste are brought to the Hub for repair and resale, with all of the money going back to the local community.

Along with making great strides towards a circular economy, the Hub provides training and employment in green skilled jobs along with working with local charities.

Renew Repair Pods

Manchester Bike Kitchen received funding during the first round of the Recycle for Greater Manchester community fund and now work with us at the Hub to repair bikes. They also run free bike maintenance workshops in pop up spaces across the city-region and are training a kickstart apprentice at the Hub.

SUEZ UK already had an established relationship with Recycling Lives and now their charity arm work with full time at the Hub to repair and test white goods and electrical items. They run an 8 week programme with ex-offenders to provide them vital skills and experience in order to reduce reoffending rates.

Creating value from waste, to benefit Greater Manchester.

Working towards a more circular economy helps Greater Manchester to meet its target of becoming a carbon neutral city region by 2038, creating opportunities for people to retrain in the waste and resources industry, giving them the skills they need and creating good green jobs right across Greater Manchester.

Repairing and reusing minimises the need to extract raw materials to make new products and makes better use of the existing materials. We want to live in a world where there is no waste.
