Rennew Traditional Building Materials

We love how recycling old furniture and household items is becoming more popular recently. We specialise in reclaimed building materials, so if you're rebuilding part of your house and have bricks or roofing tiles you no longer need, call around your local reclamation yards. You might have just what they're looking for!

I display items outside my house with a sign saying 'Free, please take'. Usually takes about 20 minutes for someone to ask if they can have it. My sister tried this in London and got rid of loads of unwanted furniture in less than 5 minutes.
