Items such as fridges, freezers, washing machines, cookers, microwaves and dishwashers are given to EDP to recondition and sell on at affordable prices. The scheme has proved so popular that the charity is selling around 50 a week.
EDP engineers assess on site which items can be fixed, and those that can are collected and reconditioned for re-selling. Any items that are unfixable will be put into Premier’s existing Waste, Electronic and Electrical (WEEE) recycling system and the components will then be taken for recycling.
The East Durham Partnership is a charity which provides household goods to disadvantaged people in the county. Set up to ensure that everyone can afford quality items for their homes the charity reconditions secondhand white goods and furniture, before selling it on at a very low cost. Any profit made from the sale of items is used to create jobs at the charity for people who are currently unemployed.
