FURNITURE, electrical goods, household items, toys, sports equipment, books, bikes...

Just some of the cut-price lots to be picked up at Moray Waste Buster's (MWB) auction this month.

The social enterprise is offering more than 60 items during the event at Waterford Recycling Centre on Saturday October 28 at 11am. Viewing and registration is from 9.30am and operations manager, Phil Mills, wants as many local people as possible to take a bargain home.

He said: "Usually it's first-come-first-served, but with these selected items we've decided to hold an auction to give all those interested an equal chance. Successful bidders will leave with real bargains, just as they would any other day they visit us."

MWB prime concern is diverting reusable goods away from landfill but it also provides: work experience for disadvantaged people; educational visits for schools and other interested groups; workshop space; and supports local charities by collecting on their behalf, and by providing items/services at a discount.

MWB has no owner or shareholders, and any surplus income after overheads are paid for is reinvested in the business.

"We sometimes find interesting and collectible things amongst the items folk leave with us," added Phil.

"As a charity with bills to pay, the temptation has been to eBay them. However, we want to show the range and quality of reusable items found at MWB.

"These things have come from local people and we feel they should be offered to local people first."
