Since Refurbiz was established in 2003, more than 8000 low income families in Wiltshire have benefited from around 12,000 quality, reconditioned, white goods at prices they can afford. However, in the current economic environment we are struggling to source enough feedstock to service our demand.
With people hanging on to their old models & machines for longer we are increasingly in need of unwanted free standing electric cookers, washing machines, dryers and refrigeration. We simply can’t meet the demand for them and if the economy continues to be slow and more people find themselves in difficulties, the demand is only going to go higher.
So please, if you are replacing any white goods, particularly electric cookers and working fridges, phone us and we will come out and remove them free of charge.
We screen the goods, restore those that can be repaired and then pass them onto those in need. Typically, the cost of a washing machine or cooker comes to about £85 with a three month warranty – vastly lower than buying new goods from the stores.
So, if you have any white goods you no longer want and wish to donate, you can help a family in need by contacting Refurbiz on 01380 720200.
Refurbiz operates out of the Hopton Park Industrial Estate in Devizes, and supplies refurbished white goods across Wiltshire and Swindon. The charity was set up by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nine years ago to encourage electrical waste to be reused for the benefit of those in need. It is an independent not-for-profit charity supported by self-generated income and charitable grants.
