Reuse is to use something again for its original purpose or to fulfil a different function by creative reuse or repurposing.

This is the best option before recycling the item.

Reuse differs from Recycling. To Recycle, the product undergoes an industrial process to change its form.

Try to avoid the use of disposable items by purchasing items that can be reused, saving money and reducing the long term environmental impact of disposable goods. Try the following and see what a difference you can make.

  • Use a refillable drinks bottle
  • Use a standard razor instead of a disposable
  • Purchase bags for life

Examples of Reuse in Flintshire:

Reuseable nappies

If your child is aged between 0 and 18 months old, you may be entitled to vouchers worth up to £75 towards either the purchase of real nappies or a Real Nappy Laundry Service. 

As the average baby uses 5,000 nappies from birth to potty training, Reusable Nappies offer a considerable saving.
