Will WasteNott open more hours?
In our new shop we will be opening Wednesday as well as Thursday and Saturday, and on Saturday we will open all day until 4.30pm.
We are hoping to get back to opening 4 full days over the next few months.
How does it work?
Just bring your containers in and firstly weigh your empty container with the lid on. Mark the weight with a pen/ pencil. Then just fill them up with what you want.
When you are ready, take to till and they will then take off the weight of the container, weigh it and you will see the price on the till.
What if I don't have containers?
We will have plenty of containers - jars, bottles and paper bags, you can buy. So don't worry if you haven't got them with you when you come in.
Is there anything I need to be careful about?
It is your responsibility to make sure your containers are clean and dry, so make sure they are spotless and well dried before putting lids back on. Also don't use any food containers for non food items e.g. juice bottle for washing up liquid, that is to avoid any nasty accidents. Label up what is in each container. Pens will be there to help
What can I do now?
Save all your containers that normally go in the recycling. - glass jars and bottles, plastic tubs and bottles, cleaning liquid bottles, toiletry containers. Wash them out and make sure they are dry. They will be ready to bring in to reuse.
Can I volunteer at WasteNott?
Yes we have a number of volunteers who work in our shop. If you are interested just let us know. We have a recruitment process and training through an online NVQ level 2 course on Health and Hygiene in retail.
