'Pass it on Week' at Shetland Home Co

Shetland Home Co is delighted to be taking part in Pass it on Week – Scotland’s annual re-use week, from Saturday 11th to Sunday 19th March 2017.

Pass it on Week is all about promoting re-use in the community, which is exactly what Shetland Home Co is all about. Pass it on Week is an initiative by Zero Waste Scotland, part of the Scottish Government’s strategy to help to create a "zero waste" society by the year 2025.

We live in an age where many items are considered to be disposable, when really they have a lot more life left in them. Help to reduce waste to landfill by passing on your items that could be reused by someone else. You are also helping the environment when you choose to buy recycled items, rather than choosing to “buy new” every time.

This is the perfect time of year for a Spring Clean at home! So if you are having a clear out and have items that still have life in them, and could be used by someone else, then please come along and donate your items. It’s amazing how much your unwanted household items can have value for others.

We are particularly interested in donations of:

  • Furniture including couches, wardrobes, chests of drawers, tables and chairs
  • Domestic white goods and electrical items
  • Computers, printers and monitors
  • Games, Books, DVDs, CD's and Vinyl
  • Mirrors and Pictures
  • Collectables, China, Glassware

You might pick up some gems for yourself too! One person’s bruck is another person’s treasure. We have a constantly changing and diverse range of stock in the Shetland Home Co, from new items in their box to antiques. We have furniture ready for your next Annie Sloan project; affordable games and DVDs to entertain the family; extensive vinyl collection for vinyl fans; a wide range of household items for first-time buyers in their new home; we also have a varied collection of art for the home.

We really appreciate all donations and happily accept these from you at the Shetland Home Co, Port Business Park, Gremista, Lerwick ZE1 0TW
(We’re next to JRJ Garage and Ocean Kinetics). Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 9am – 4pm. All year round.

We are adding in some additional hours to our opening times during Pass it on Week, to help those who can’t access the Shetland Home Co during our normal hours:

  • Thursday 16th March – 9am until 7pm
  • Sunday 19th March – 12noon until 4pm.

If you have large items you would like to donate we offer a collection service for these FREE of charge. For more information call 01595 696889 then press 2.
