Environmental Policy

At Second to None we are committed to reusing and recycling. By selling used items, we are reducing the need for new materials being used. The second hand and antique trade has been reusing and recycling for hundreds of years, long before it was considered the right thing to do.

At Second to None we make a real effort to sell used items, anything that cannot be resold will be recycled where possible.

We take our waste to the local licenced commercial waste and recycling facility, where they recycle the items that we can't recycle ourselves. They recycle metal, wood, cardboard, paper, textiles, plastics, soil, hardcore and green waste. Any leftover unrecyclable materials they take in bulk to the nearest landfill site, making the journey there more fuel efficient. As a licenced waste carrier, we ensure that all waste is safely disposed of at a licenced site.

As a 'green business' we care about the environment and make every effort to reduce waste, energy and pollution. We are members of the Antiques are Green project which is committed to reusing items for the benefit of our environment.
