It’s all about caring for our planet …
Our mission is to keep as much as possible out of our landfills by accepting:
(a) good quality household items that are clean, safe, hygienic and readily saleable
(b) any other items we have the facility to recycle.
If it’s something we can sell then passing it on to Trash Palace will ensure it “goes around one more time”, preventing the purchase of a similar product new from somewhere else (and thus saving all the resources involved in creating, shipping and marketing that new item).
If it’s something we can recycle then passing it on to Trash Palace helps reduce global production of the raw materials recovered.
