Refurbished tools ready for redistribution.

The tools, which were donated at Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre by residents, have been refurbished at HMP Wandsworth. The scheme gives unwanted garden tools a new lease of life and enables prisoners to learn new skills.

If you would like a set of tools, please email pryczan@lambeth.gov.uk with a brief description of your organisation or project.

We look forward to getting these tools working back in the community they came from!

If you have tools rusting away in your garage or shed, please bring them along to Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre.


Win a set of refurbished garden tools!

October 4, 2013

TToolshe tools we collect at Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre are donated to Tools Shed, a charity that works with local prisons to give old, unwanted tools a new lease of life.

For the last few years, we have been taking all suitable garden tools to HMP Wandsworth where they are refurbished ready for donation to local community gardening groups and schools.

To thank Lambeth residents for your continued support, Tools Shed have kindly given us a number of sets of tools, all refurbished at HMP Wandsworth, to give away to community organisations, schools and individuals in Lambeth.

If you would like to get your hands on a set , all you have to do is let us know how you have incorporated reuse into your garden.

Perhaps you reuse your plastic yoghurt pots for seedlings? Grow potatoes in tyres or have built your raised beds from reclaimed wood?

Whatever you’ve done, let us know; if you’ve got a photograph even better! Our favourites will each receive a set of refurbished tools.

 We really look forward to receiving your entries by 25 October 2013!
