Rover - Mobile recycling unit

If you have any unwanted items at home whether they are in working order or not; you can now bring them to Rover.

All items brought will be either recycled or reused. The electrical workshop on Bristol Avenue will refurbish broken electrical items. 

We will fix any items that we can. After repair we will give them to local charities for use by residents in need of support.
