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: if still in a good condition, visually appealing, complete and clean, your items can be passed on. Given that BENU REUSE doesn't repair or touches up any items, BENU REUSE generally only passes on those items that are in good working order. In other words: any item which does not need to be repaired and which can be reused immediately can be passed on via BENU REUSE. Items in need of repair are only passed on if potential receivers are explicitly looking for them in a wanted ad.
We take care of the transport from the giver to the receiver. Therefore, items should be no larger than they can fit into the BENU REUSE van and no heavier than two people from our team can load. 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 pass it on. We try to coordinate the necessary transport routes of the different deliveries as best as possible - nevertheless, the necessary effort to transport 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.
BENU REUSE's general criteria
- well preserved
- visually appealing
- in entirety
- no need for repair
- suitable for direct further use
- can be stored in the BENU REUSE van and transported by a maximum of two people .
In the spirit of sustainability, we apply even stricter 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 the specific device if it still makes sense to continue using it.
You will find everything you need to know about this when checking out the additional information. Here, we also explain to you why certain items are excluded from being passed on, and provide some advice on what you should pay attention to when continuing to use them. You will also get some advice and suggestions regarding a more sustainable consumption.
If your item cannot be delivered via BENU REUSE, consult the REUSE service. Here, you will find many organizations, initiatives and businesses that accept, forward, repair or sell used items. Let yourself be surprised!
