Much Ado About Reuse A video guide to setting up a Household Waste Recycling Centre reuse shop. Much Ado About Reuse provides an insight into the award-winning reuse shops established in 2009 by Warwickshire County Council on three of their HWRCs. Run by community organisations, the shops have proved to be hugely successful, giving new life to discarded goods and diverting many tonnes of resources from landfill while generating significant revenues. The film looks at the practicalities of setting up and running a successful HWRC reuse shop and explores the benefits these shops have brought to the council, the organisations that run them, the environment and the public who have embraced these reuse outlets.
