Second Treasures, a shop run by the Wellington City Council near the Southern Landfill are encouraging residents to do a spring clean and drop off their unwanted items for other people to love them a second time around. I was up dropping off a load of green waste over the weekend and took a look inside the shop. There is a lot of great opportunities to find gems. I ended up buying some garden fertilizer which is essentially recycled green waste (which I was ironically dropping off that day!).
This is a tear-sheet from the Our Wellington page in the 10 September 2013 Dominion Post. We set up James Williams, one of the employees at Second Treasures with a bunch of items which other employees kept loading more and more onto him.
