The Eaglehawk Recycle Shop has launched a new project, the ERS Bazaar.

The newly-designed space will offer pre-loved clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories, allowing them to increase capacity to reduce waste in an innovative and creative way and to offer the public more variety.

Manager Peter Buck said he is pleased with the new area.

“After months of planning, designing and building we are ready to open for business,” he said.

“From the ground up we have embraced the reduce, reuse, recycle philosophy that drives us, both as a business and as a community enterprise.

“We encourage the donation of good quality clothing, shoes and accessories to continue to drive this new business; your donations and custom help not only to reduce landfill and waste, but also contribute to the continued maintenance of the Eaglehawk Recycle

Shop and to support our local community through paid employment opportunities.”

The bazaar is open from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
