Within Surrey, we have five Revive re-use shops where you can buy pre-owned items for the home and garden. All our community recycling centres have re-use drop-off points where you can leave items you no longer want that could be used by someone else.

Every year, we divert almost 1,000 tonnes of items that are being disposed of and put them back into good use through our Revive re-use shops. Our shops sell an eclectic range of items including:

  • Furniture
  • Bikes
  • Crockery
  • Tools
  • Garden furniture and ornaments
  • CDs, DVDs and records
  • Sports equipment
  • TVs, computer screens and lamps

By donating and shopping at Revive, you’ll be helping to:

  • Give items a second life.
  • Reduce waste and the associated disposal costs.
  • Raise money for local charities, as we donate 10% of net profits.
  • Maintain essential services within Surrey County Council, as revenue raised in the shops is used to offset the running costs of the community recycling centres.

Revive re-use shop locations

Our currently open Revive re-use shops are located at our community recycling centres at the following locations:

Item checks

All items are checked by our team to make sure that they are suitable for re-use. Some items, such as sofas and toys, will only be sold where they have the correct safety labels. Other items, such as bikes, are sold for spares and repairs only. Electrical items are PAT tested and come with a two-week, no quibble refund policy.

Nominating a charity

Revive Community Fund

Each year, 10% of net profits from the Revive re-use shops are donated to support local causes with over £68,000 donated locally since 2018.

Launched in 2023, the Revive Community Fund has two funding rounds each year with grants of up to £10,000 available for organisations developing community, health, and environmental projects in Surrey.

The purpose of the fund is to help improve community life and support the people and environment of Surrey, so this funding is only available for formally constituted, not-for-profit organisations that plan to spend the money on projects within the county.

All applicants must be formally constituted (e.g., club, registered charity, smaller groups) and must be not-for-profit organisations. Applications will be reviewed by SUEZ and Surrey County Council representatives who will award the funds. For more information and to apply for funding, please visit our fund page on
