Spring’s Alive at Second Chance Reuse Shop

09 September 2022 1:02 PM

Since it’s opening in March, the Second Chance Reuse Shop has diverted 39 tonnes of goods from landfill, and welcomed hundreds of people through its gates.

Based out of the Walliston Transfer Station, Second Chance Reuse Shop is a home for quality recycled items as well as an employer of people with disability.

From September, the shop will undergo a spring makeover with the additions of a new range of pot plants and succulents, as well as other green garden goods for re-sale; a new range of native plants available for purchase, grown specifically for the Kalamunda area; and a kid’s corner with books, a chalk board, and a table and chairs for the kids to play.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said the shop has already proven to be a fantastic asset for the community.

“Since it’s opening in March, the Second Chance Reuse Shop has diverted 39 tonnes of goods from landfill, and welcomed hundreds of people through its gates.”

“I can’t wait to see the new additions at the shop, I’m particularly excited about the native plants for sale.”

“The shop has some other new things coming up too, with new educational materials to come including guides on how to up-cycle. This initiative is designed to educate the public on the principles of the circular economy and encourage the re-purposing of everyday items.”

The Second Chance Reuse Shop is run through a partnership between the City of Kalamunda and Workpower.
