What does BENU REUSE stand for?

BENU REUSE criteria

You have things that you no longer need? Are you looking for a specific item or materials? It doesn't matter if they are new or used: Your items can be mediated if they are still in good condition, complete, in good condition and clean. At BENU REUSE, we do not repair or touch up items, so we generally only mediate items that are in good working order - that is, which do not need to be repaired and that can be used directly by the recipient. Items in need of repair are only mediated if potential recipients are explicitly looking for them in a wanted ad.

We take care of the transport from the donor to the recipient. Therefore, items should be no larger than they can fit into the transporter BENU REUSE and no heavier than two people from our team can load them. Larger items, such as furniture, can be transported when disassembled. Here, you will find our recommendations for preparing the transport of disassembled items. 

If you are looking for a single, small item or would like to pass it on, you should consider whether it makes sense for BENU REUSE to arrange a mediation. We try to coordinate the necessary transport routes of the different deliveries as best as possible - nevertheless, the transport effort for a small single item can be disproportionately large. In the case of a single candlestick, for example, it would make more sense for you to take it to a second-hand shop near you.

General criteria BENU REUSE

  • well preserved


  • visually beautiful
  • clean


  • functional


  • in entirety


  • no need for repair


  • suitable for direct further use


  • can be stored in the BENU REUSE transporter


  • can be transported by a maximum of two people

.

In the spirit of sustainability, we apply even stricter mediation standards to a variety of items. For example, building materials contaminated with harmful substances should not be reused but disposed of properly. In the case of a used electrical device, it can also depend on the age and energy efficiency of a model if it still makes sense to continue using it.

You will find everything you need to know about this under additional information. We also explain why certain items are excluded from being mediated, and provide some advice on what you should pay attention to when continuing to use them. You will also get some advice and suggestions for a more sustainable consumption.
