Brixton Reuse Centre (BRC) will transform a disused garage block near Loughborough Junction into a mini trading estate where waste items will be repaired and remanufactured into new products. BRC will bring new life to 200 tonnes of waste materials each year, including furniture, bikes, wood, tools, musical instruments, computers, textiles and more. The project will provide training and volunteering opportunities and green jobs â€“ equipping local people with skills for a low carbon economy.

If you would like to be kept informed about the project or get involved, please drop us an email.
